What to drink with a Tournedos?

A great classic of the main courses, tournedos is a "must" of red meat. A meat that can perhaps be drunk with more than 100 different wines (appellations). So as usual, no fuss, Les Grappes offers you its selection...

The best thing about a good tournedos is that you don't need a knife, it can be cut with a fork because it's so tender. The piece of meat chosen is the fillet of beef! Decorated with a little pepper sauce and a few shallots (for the purists). A classic of red meat served with baked or pan-fried potatoes, it's a treat every time.

But it always comes back to the same thing: many red wines are suitable for red meat and especially for tournedos, the classic of classics!
