Wine Advocate Weekend Pairings: Duck
“Pinot Noir is a classic pairing for duck but once in awhile it's fun to change things up,” says reviewer Erin Brooks. “A Mourvèdre-based wine is a great alternative—medium-bodied with ripe red and black fruits, spices and earthy characteristics. The Château de Pibarnon is one of my favorite reds from Bandol and it will shine with this dish. The sweet fruit of the Mourvèdre will accent the sweetness of the red wine sauce and the root vegetables, while not barreling over the subtle flavors of the duck and the earthy aspects of the dish.”
