Andy’s Wine Pairings
Add a bottle (or two) of handpicked wines from our wine director to your Bird Box meal.
Sancerre, Hippolyte Reverdy, 2019, Loire
There were a few sunny days this week and Spring is finally in the air…the pretty floral tones and peachy flavors of this wine remind us of everything we love about the season. Michel Reverdy makes tiny amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir at his families’ Domaine in the village of Verdigny, in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley. This wine has wonderful texture but is also crisp and mineral-driven (it is aged for 1 year in stainless steel). We think it will really make the flavors in the green-garlic risotto pop and will compliment lamb and rapini as well!
Chinon, Les Grézeaux, Bernarnd Baudry, 2018, Loire
The Loire Valley is famous for its fantastic wines but it is also known for the quality of its cheeses and meats…the local lamb from Touraine is renowned for its top quality and flavor. So, we decided to pair a Loire Cabernet Franc with this week’s entrée. Bernard Baudry studied viticulture in Beane and brings a Burgundian outlook to his winemaking. He chooses to bottle many of his vineyard sites separately in order to better showcase the differences in terroir. The Grézeaux vineyard contains 65-year-old vines planted on gravelly soils and is fermented and aged in concrete tank. The 2018 is a bit more full-bodied than some previous vintages but the wine still has great balance. It smells of black cherries, raspberries, peppercorns and 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.
