What Wine Goes With Confit de Canard?

Wine School Orders Duck Confit for Wine Tastings…

We’ve just had an order for some confit de canard which had to be there in a hurry, because it was needed for a particular evening event at the Hertforshire Wine School. And so a brief correspondence started and I asked about which wines went with confit de canard…

David the owner of the Wine School, answered… “Yes, the package arrived yesterday afternoon – thanks for that.” (That’s just the PR puff about  prompt delivery, on my part!) And then continued “Duck is one of those versatile meats that goes pretty well with lots of wine. Pinot Noir is often the best bet, which can be quite acidic for a red and so helps to cut through all that lovely fat. I ordered this lot for a tasting of Rhone wines – mostly reds, from Southern Rhone. Some whites also work quite well  e.g. Marsanne-Roussane blends (again from the Rhone), or a nice fat, oaky, Chardonnay.”

I’ll let you know how it goes.” says David… I’m hoping that his scholars like the wine and the confit duck…
