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, so it is necessary to accompany it with a wine that 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 Southwestern red wine.
It may seem rather classic to serve a red wine from Bordeaux with a duck breast, but it is very effective. A duck breast in the oven or a duck breast a la plancha will serve as the perfect cooking dish.
Often good surprises with the wines of Côtes-de-Gascogne. A little known appellation with low volumes that 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 which wine will enhance your duck breast?
