Good Afternoon,

Could any one suggest a wine(s) to complement spiced lamb dishes such as tangine or morrocan style lamb dishes ?

All advice gratefully recieved.

Many Thanks.

Hi Kerri, and welcome to the Wine Board. recommend a Cotes du Rhone Villages.

Morrocans like Mourvedre with the food.

In that case you may want a Spanish Monstrell which is made from the same grape. A Southern French Bandol is also made from it, but will be more expensive.

Thankyou InnKeeper & foodie.

Would a Cotes du Rhone La Denteliere be suitable you think? It is a blend of Mourvedre, Syrah & Cinsault.

You bet.

Ok,thanks once again

The Cotes du Rhone should be fine with it.
