Andy’s Wine Pairings
Add a bottle (or two) of handpicked wines from our wine director to your Bird Box meal.
Grüner Veltliner, Ried Mühlpoint, Federspiel, 2017 Wachau, Austria $45
Grüner is the most widely planted grape in Austria but a lot of Americans haven’t discovered the magic of the variety. Leo Alzinger’s wines are some of the best in the category. He has 30-50 year old vines and owns large chunks of the two most prized vineyards in the Wachau (the best growing region in the country). In the cellar, Leo deftly finds a balance between ripe fruit and texture and really showcases the terroir from which the wines are grown. This bottling smells of white peach, lemons, white pepper and wet rocks and has the perfect just enough weight to pair with rabbit.
Savigny-Les-Beaune,1er Cru Aux Forneaux, Domaine Rapet 2017, Burgundy $50
Pinot Noir from Burgundy may be the perfect food wine because its bright acidity and medium body make it an easy match for a variety of dishes. We are always on the hunt for Burgundies that are characteristic of their terroir, but that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Needless to say, this bottle really over-delivers! The Rapet’s have been making wine in the Côte de Beaune since 1765 and the wines have never been better. This Pinot is sourced from 50-year old vines in the Forneaux vineyard (this comes from the upper half, the lower half is designated as village-level wine). After fermentation, the wines ages in 20% new French oak barrels. This is classic Savigny-Les-Beaune at its finest. The wine smells of black cherries, raspberries, violets, and dried herbs with the perfect amount of rusticity to match with rabbit.
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.
