Recipe Thursday: Steak and Bordeaux

Red Bordeaux is often the go-to pairing for steak, and for good reason. Actually, there is some science behind it. According to an article in the Smithsonian, researchers have found that “astringent wine and fatty meat occupy different ends of the culinary sensory spectrum, titillating our palate in ways neither offering could do on its own.”

A wonderful Bordeaux that will not disappoint when it comes to steak pairing is the Chateau Lamothe Bordeaux Rouge. Chock-full of classic plum fruit, spice and savory notes, this wine is a match made in heaven for a perfectly cooked steak (thank you, Jamie Oliver).
