World Malbec Day is upon us! The ever so popular Malbec and the ultimate partner to red meat.
WHAT TO DRINK WITH SCALLOPS ?
Scallops are very hugely versatile and one of the most delicious seafood around. They are found in most cuisines throughout the world, whether it is as an Asian ceviche, fried in butter with garlic or gratinées French coquilles St. Jacques.
We love them and they are great fun to match with wine. Super scallops!
We have partnered them with 2 very different wines from Dourthe vineyards.
CLASSIC WINE MATCH
Château La Garde Blanc 2014, Pessac-Léognan
For a classic pairing, Anthony Rault, sommelier of the restaurant L’Amphitryon in Brittany, recommends Château La Garde, Pessac-Léognan white, a perfect match with this Scallops and Citrus recipe. The natural freshness of Château La Garde white will perfectly balance the texture and lemony flavours of the dish, that remind the wine aromas. Buy this wine here:
