Only you, meat and wine

Briefly and on the matter of what to drink a piece of meat. We mean meat, virgin, cooked without extra gadgets. Olive oil, here and there pepper or a branch of rosemary, and on fire. And then – sprinkle with a large salt and pour the wine into the glass. We tell which one exactly.

To start with the basic rules:

  • We look at our meat. To red (beef, lamb, duck breast) you need red wine, to white (chicken, turkey) – white. Pork and rabbit on the edge – they are suitable for a rose or light red, or white denser.
  • Analyze the piece further. The fatter it is – the more acid and powerful the wine should be.
  • We estimate the age of the killed flesh. With the adult, only wines will be coped, rougher, with a rich taste. Young meat is better to drink wine with a light, with a bias in berries and fruits.

Now examples of specific wines. We indicated the price range, which is better to navigate. That is, everything that is cheaper is dangerous to take, pleasure is doubtful. And all that is more expensive – it is not worth taking, because it will be nice there, but it can be just as pleasant for less money.

To reject our strict list is possible. If on a note there are wines, similar in type. For example, instead of a pink bordeaux, open up some other rose, the same berry and neat. And instead of Beaujolais, a vallage is a thin Valpolicella, it is also about fruit and berry frivolity.
