Ben & Andy’s Wine Pairings
Add a bottle (or two) of handpicked wines from our wine team to your Bird Box meal.
Pinot Bianco, Villa Russiz, 2016, Collio, Friuli, Italy, $28
Villa Russiz is located in the Collio hills of Friuli in Northeastern Italy. The winery was founded in 1868 in what was at the time part of Austria. “Russiz” is the name of the area used at that time. The rolling hills of the region are wedged between the Adriatic Sea and the Julian alps which provide cooling breezes for long, even ripening of grapes. The other defining character of the region that makes it great for wine growing is a special type of soil called “ponca” which is a type of clay that contains lots of limestone and silica. After WWI the estate was turned into the Foundation Villa Russiz. It was donated to the Italian government and is still an active orphanage, using profits from wine sales to maintain itself. This slightly weightier example of the grape smells of stone fruits and yellow apples. It is textural, but quite crisp and mineral driven. A perfect pairing with the Vichyssoise and still able to stand in up with the Chicken, if necessary.
Ladoix (Pinot Noir), Les Briquottes, Maison François de Nicolay, 2017, Burgundy, France, $50
François de Nicolay is 1/2 of the brother/sister team that runs one of our favorite Burgundy domaines, Chandon de Briailles. Maison François de Nicolay is a small micro-negociant that allows them to work with fruit from other growers and vineyards that they don’t own, however just like all the domaine fruit is biodynamically grown, they only purchase fruit that is grown in the same manner. The wines are made in the Chandon cellar in Savigny-les-Beaune, always with very little new oak, and minimal, if any, sulphur. Ladoix, while not one of Burgundy’s more famous vineyards, is one of the three villages that abut the Hill of Corton, some of its vineyards are part of the Grand Cru, most famously Grand Cru Le Rognet. Les Briquottes was part of a quarry many moons ago before it was a vineyard, so as you can imagine it has quite stony, and in this case even chalky soil. The wine is a perfect wine for a truffly, mushroomy, spring dinner. Vibrant, juicy and tart red fruit, a touch of electric spice, and just a kiss of earth.
All of the meals will include 3-courses, a fancy salad for assembling at home, a protein with sides packed ready for re-heating, and dessert. Each box is designed to be heated at home and will generously feed two humans.
Dishes will vary each week.
All boxes are nut free, but we are unable to accommodate any further dietary restrictions or modifications at this time.Le Pigeon will be following strict safety procedures, and will offer curbside pickup or will bring the meal to your car.
