Food Pairing - What's best with mushroom risotto

Mushroom risotto

Château Le Boscq

The earthy flavours of mushrooms conjure memories of autumnal walks and kicking up leaves beneath the trees. Wine experts use ‘undergrowth’ as a tasting note to describe flavours and aromas that a red wine can pick up during long ageing, so older vintages of Bordeaux and Burgundy or a rustic Chianti could work. A savoury style of white wine with good acidity would also work well, cutting through the creamy texture of the risotto – as would vintage Champagne, if you’re feeling decadent

Château Le Boscq 2011: Spicy, autumnal black fruit combined with a velvety texture makes this a decadent match with creamy risotto.
