The duck breast is one of the favorite dishes of the French. There are many ways to cook it, which will direct the wine and duck pairing towards several regions. But which wine to pair with a duck breast?
The duck breast is a rather powerful meat in taste, it is thus necessary to accompany it with a wine which can compete with this power. A pan-fried duck breast or a barbecued duck breast can be accompanied by a red wine from Bordeaux or the South West.
It may seem rather classic to serve a Bordeaux red wine with a duck breast, but it is very effective. A duck breast in the oven or a duck breast a la plancha will be the perfect way to cook it.
Often good surprises with the wines of Côtes-de-Gascogne. A little known appellation with low volumes but which deserves to be recognized for its white and red wines.
Another tip for pairing your duck breast with a wine that will bring it out: cook a red wine sauce with duck breast!
So what wine with a duck breast for you?
Enjoy your meal!
