Pairing for stuffed pork chops

Preparing boneless chops with a stuffing that includes diced cranberrys, apples and almonds. There's a nip in the air, and I'm in the mood for a red.

Any suggestions?

I'm thinking maybe CdP.

  1. a nice beaujolais perhaps? I'm a big So Rhone fan but for some reason that doesn't strike me as the right way to go. you didn't inquire but I think a riesling might work from the white side

    1. My first reaction would be Riesling, but i you are going red, I would go with a Barbera.

      A fruity Pinot (or Beaujolais) would also work.

      1. There's a coincidence! We just cooked something similar for dinner on Saturday:

        - Pork filets with a Fleur de Sel crust
        - Savoy cabbage in (very) light soy sauce
        - Garlic mashed potatoes
        - Cranberry chutney

        To that, we had a classic Gigondas from Domaine Goubert, 2000:

        We were very happy indeed.
