Oyster Mushroom Stuffed Flat Iron Roast [RECIPE]
While the earthy flavors of this elevated beef roast from Bordeaux Culinary Ambassador, Chef Michael Toscano, pair perfectly with well balanced Bordeaux reds, try an unexpected coupling from sommelier Patrick Cappiello.
Here are two of his suggestions for this Oyster Mushroom Stuffed Roast.
Traditional Wine Pairing: Château Meynard, Bordeaux 2012
Price: $11.99 (RED)
Tasting Notes: A lot of fruit appeal, with blueberry, blackberry nose flavors, rich texture.
Why Pair This Wine?This wine has a lot of fruit appeal, with blackberry nose flavors, rich texture and firm tannins. The structure of this wine makes it a classic pairing for this beef dish.
Non-Traditional Wine Pairing: La Croix de Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan 2011
Price: $30.00 (WHITE)
Tasting Notes: Reminiscent of devousine tea aromas, hints of camomile, tea balanced by lemon curd on palate, mineral notes.
Why Pair This Wine? Again, there is an inherent fear of pairing white wine with dishes like beef, but the rich, creamy style of this wine gives it the ability to stand up to the power of the dish.
