In this new wine pairing section of the IMBA wine cellar management we will discuss wine & food pairing…
An important topic indeed, right up the butler alley.
Without further ado: watch this movie clip and notice what wine the villain chooses (and how JB glances at him…)
So, what JB does really think about the pairing of Chianti (that only exists in red) with Grilled Dover Sole Fish? (answer in the clip)
If you agree with JB and prefers Blanc de Blancs (in the movie JB has selected a 1955 Comtes de Champagne from Taittinger)
Perhaps you will enjoy our Comtes de Champagne 2006 tasting note: link
The questions we will try to anwer in this thread:
In Vino Pairing Veritas #2
IVPV #2: Is there any merit to the villain red Chianti grilled sole pairing?
We will actually test it and see if it works…
In Vino Pairing Veritas (Wine & Food Pairing) #3
IVPV #3: If it is sub-optimal, we will then ask the question: but could we make it work?
In Vino Pairing Veritas (Wine & Food Pairing) #4
IVPV #4: What about James Bond, is he right choosing the Blanc de Blancs?
We will explain what principles are involved behind good wine and food pairing.
All with a lighthearted approach and with the explicit goal of making you become good at this game.
In Vino Pairing Veritas!
For a lot of people wine and food pairing may seem enigmatic, the butler will be the one who to crack that case…
