Malbec pairing for wine club meeting

Turtlegrl Mar 30, 2012 02:57 PM

It's Malbec month and I need suggestions other
than meat for pairings. I'm serving bacon burger sliders with malbec from Mendoza but need suggestions for pairings with Cahors.

    Hi Turtlegrl,

    Try dark chocolate with Malbec - you may well be surprised at just how good it is....

    Wines of Argentina (the promotional body for Argentine wine) are certainly pushing this as a pairing at the moment.

    Have fun!

      I have no idea what bacon burger sliders are but a decent pairing for Cahors if you want to avoid meat is something with a mushroom base or grilled eggplant.

        how about the cuisine of the Cahors region? Smoked muscovy duck breast...black truffles...salad with tender gizzards...walnut anything...rocamadour cheese...(as well as any of a number of other goat cheeses)...figs....
