Wine pairing with pork belly

Ilcal Jul 5, 2011 03:02 AM

we're having a crowd for dinner and my wife is braising pork belly. I was considering a frisking but prefer to go with a red, perhaps burgundy. I'd be interested in getting comments and suggestions.

    That's reisling not frisking. Computer does my thinking.

      How exactly are you braising the pork belly? That would have an effect on the selection.

        I agree that how you're braising it affects the wine choice. Thinking back to all the best pork belly I've had, I'd like a high acid white wine. So a riesling, a Cour-Cheverney, a chenin blanc, maybe even, if it's delicate enough.

          I forgot to add that it will be served with a salsa verde.

              I think a Spanish Rosado.

            It will be in a rub overnight of smoked salt,pepper, and garlic, and then braised with the same plus bay leaf in a veal stock
