Wine Pairings for Potato Lyonnaise

WINE PAIRINGS FOR POTATO LYONNAISE

as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo

Lyonnaise – heralding from Lyon, France – suggests that French-style wines would be great matches for this dish. Lyon is part of the Rhone region of France and is known for great grape varietals such as Viognier, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah among others.

Our 2018 VIP wine cruise will be on the Rhone river starting in Lyon.Contact Sue Hall of Distinctive Travel at 281-893-1104 for more information.

Recommended Wines:

Messina Hof Private Reserve Viognier 2015

(beautifully aromatic dry white) – showcases lush, ripe fruit flavors of peaches, apples and apricots. It achieves graceful balance with notes of honey and spice.

Potatoes are rich and often are matched with butter, cream which create an overall weighty texture on the palate which is nicely balanced by the fruitful delicate body of this wine.

Messina Hof GSM

(versatile and intriguing Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre dry red blend) – medium-bodied wine with a blended synergy of rich flavors like blackberry, dark cherry, and plum- with a hint of spice.

Potatoes provide great foundation for adding additional herbs, sautéed garlic and onions to match alongside of roasted meats, such as game meat, lamb, pork loin, chicken and turkey.
