Thanksgiving Wine and Food Pairings – Turkey w/Bill Elsey for Wines.com TV
November 23, 2011
Bill Elsey, our resident sommelier and Plymouth Rock native, pairs wine with the Main Event on the Thanksgiving table: Turkey. While Pinot Noir is a Thanksgiving classic, The Billgrim recommends pairing your turkey with the elegant floral and dark fruit characters of 2009 Moulin-a-Vent Beaujolais. As you can see here, despite this particular bird’s small stature (and really dark skin), the wine enhances the meat’s flavor profile to yield a ravenous appetite.
