Burgundy wine and food, a match made in heaven or not?

Matching food and wine may not be as complicated as we sometimes think. But certain combinations are better than others and sometimes it is worthwhile to think a little extra on what goes well together. And if the wines are from the classic region of Burgundy it is even more exciting.

Burgundy is not only known for its fine wines but also for its food. Many of the classic French dishes come from here, coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, snails to name just a few. There are also some fabulous cheeses. Epoisse is the most famous but if you go to Burgundy do not miss our other favourites, citeaux, ami du chambertin and soumaintrain.

In conjunction with the Burgundy Day in Stockholm recently, BKWine’s Carl-Erik Kanne met with Michel Jamais over lunch. Read more about it here Matching Burgundy wines with food – Burgundy Master Class.

The best way to enjoy combinations of burgundy wines and delicious food is of course to do it on site in Burgundy. On a wine tour to Burgundy you will experience both extensive wine tastings and gourmet meals and many opportunities to explore wine and food matching.
