Ben & Andy’s Wine Pairings
Add a bottle (or two) of handpicked wines from our wine team to your Bird Box meal.
Riesling, Trocken, Clemens Busch, 2017, Mosel, $27
Riesling has long been a favorite of wine geeks all over the world. This bottling is a great introduction if you don’t have much experience, but will also have serious aficionados taking notice. The current Clemens Busch is the 5th generation to helm his family’s estate (all his predecessors were also named Clemens), and since taking over in 1984 has introduced organic farming practices and brought a new level of focus within the winery. The domaine is located in the heart of the Mosel Valley where the vineyards are planted on steep slopes close to the Mosel River. The soils are a combination of blue, red and gray slate, all from different geologic periods. The vines for this bottling grew in gray slate (hence the color of the capsule) and many of them are up to 60 years old, which helps imbue the wine with added depth and complexity. This trocken or “dry” bottling is fermented and aged in a mix of neutral barrels and tank. Clemens allows about 20% to go through malolactic fermentation to help round out the mouthfeel. This enticing bottle is light on its feet and smells of a cornucopia of fruits from limes to peach and even kiwi which will be a great match for the spicy elements in each dish!
Dolcetto di Dogliani, Nicholas Altare, 2019, Piedmont, $28
Dolcetto often plays second fiddle to Piedmont’s Nebbiolo grape. Found throughout the region, its medium body, pleasant fruitiness, and accessibility make it a mainstay of many Piemontese tables. Nestled high up against the Alps is a tiny area called Dogliani that specializes in producing Docletto of unparalleled depth and complexity. This Dolcetto is more than that. It made us stop and take notice. We are so happy to have discovered Nicholas Altare’s wines. At only 27 years of age he’s already proving to have a deft hand in the vineyards and the cellar. Altare farms organically, and he understands the importance of cultivating his vines in a holistic and regenerative manner. Nicholas tries to intervene in the winemaking process as little as possible and this wine is aged in stainless steel for 10 months to let the grapes express themselves without the influence of oak barrels. This wine has velvety texture and smells of blueberries, candied plums, purple flowers and wet leaves with a finish that lasts for minutes.
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.
