Lamb is a tender and tasty meat. Sometimes considered a white meat, lamb goes extremely well with red wine. However, it is important to make the good choice of your red wine with lamb. Indeed, the finesse this wine pairing is only equalled by the tenderness of this delicious meat. Whether it is the leg, the shoulder or the other pieces of lamb, there is no doubt that choosing the right wine will allow you to enjoy this dish with a pleasure that you will not be able to hide.
Choosing the right red wine with lamb
Red wine and lamb therefore make a wonderful alliance; but you still have to choose the right red wine. To do this, one must avoid wines with too pronounced tannins. Indeed, these could be too sharp with the meat and diminish the expression of its finesse. Consequently, you must look for elegant tannins that will sublimate this delicious meat. Thus, the alliance of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will be perfect to accompany lamb. That being said, we recommend that you turn to more evolved vintages (between 7 and 12 years old). The melted tannins and the aromatic richness of the latter will be perfect to sublimate your dish and combine great wine and high gastronomy. Furthermore, to achieve the perfect match with lamb, you should look for a long-lasting wine.
