Recipe Thursday: A Pairing to Warm Things Up in Winter


There are so many things to love about winter – hot cocoa, cozy fires, fuzzy socks. When it comes to food and wine in the winter, one of the ultimate pleasures of a chilly evening is tucking into a warm, hearty meal with a superb glass of red wine. One such pairings to warm the body and soul is BBC Food’s Lamb, Red Wine and Rosemary Casserole paired with a delicious bottle of Domaine Martin Clerc Côte-Rôtie.

Martin Clerc’s Côte-Rôtie is a natural fit for the unctuous lamb, as Syrah’s gamey, savory profile brings out the warming spices in the lamb. There is also a balance of weight – the medium-bodied Syrah will not overpower the delicate flavors and aromatics of the lamb.
