Wine to Pair with Chicken Cordon Bleu
I'm going to a dinner party Saturday and Chicken Cordon Bleu will be served. I was asked to bring a bottle of wine and was wondering what might pair well. I tried searching in a couple of places online and saw a blanket answer of Chardonnay, without any style info given. Since the style can run from the big, buttery, oaky (which we don't like) to something at the opposite end of the spectrum like a Chablis, "chardonnay" really didn't tell me anything. I was also thinking, on the red side, that a Pinot Noir might work.
Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks.
I think I would want something sparkling to cut through the fattiness and saltiness of that dish. Prosecco or a German Sekt might be nice.
If you were going for a Chardonnay I would stay away from oak, and pinot noir might work also. But for my money I'd want something with bubbles.
