February 14 is fast approaching, Valentine’s Day or not, any occasion is good to take to enjoy (in moderation) a bottle of wine with your other half or your friends! Cantenac Brown offers you some ideas to accompany your bottles during this evening.
Chocolates and Chateau Cantenac Brown!
An original association: dark chocolate and Margaux. The tannins contained in Château Cantenac Brown respond to the power of cocoa and underline the taste of a ganache or a dark chocolate fondant. The richer your dessert is in chocolate, the more you can afford to associate it with full-bodied wines, like our Grand Cru.
An aperitif dinner with Brio de Cantenac Brown
For an aperitif accompanied by red wine, the charcuterie platter is a must. Pan-fried black pudding is also a specialty of choice. For the cheese, as for the charcuterie, beware of dishes too rich in fat that will increase the acidity of the wine. Comté, Gruyère and Beaufort cheeses are ideal for an aperitif plank accompanied by an old Bordeaux wine.
Alto de Cantenac Brown to accompany your Valentine’s Day meal
For this Valentine’s Day dinner, it is best to opt for a light dish such as fish. Salmon is one of the most common fish in our western diet. That’s why it’s important to know which wine to choose with salmon. First of all: white wines that go very well with the different flavors (smoky, lemony…) that this fish can take. An Alto 2021 will go very well with this dish.
