Generally speaking, what type of wine is the best food wine?

#1 Post by Brandon R » July 10th, 2019, 8:22 pm

Yeah, yeah, I know this is a very subjective and difficult question, but a TN I saw in CT got me thinking. I'm wondering what people think is the best food wine. In other words, what wine is only so-so most of the time, but absolutely blossoms when paired with food? I know there will always be outliers (e.g. I had THIS Chianti Classico that was amazing on it's own, but was also amazing with food...) and exceptions, but I'm curious what others think. I have my hunch of what will win (even if I don't agree necessarily): Champagne. I voted for Chianti. To me, it's a supremely versatile food wine and is mostly good but not great on its own (unlike Champagne, which is often epic on its own and also with food), but is awesome with the right food.

I mean you can't really choose a region like this. Good acid and moderate abv are +++, heavier, higher abv, more extracted wines limit you and also you just can't drink as much of those! Champagne and Chianti are the most likely (and versatile) choices for me.

Sorry but the question as posed makes no sense at all. The best food wine is whatever you happen to like with whatever you happen to be eating. And it changes from day to day.

There's no characteristic that makes one wine food-friendly and another food-antagonistic. And it's an extremely limited selection, which means "other" has to be the default. None of those are wines I drink with any frequency. And Champagne is probably the last thing I'd reach for. In thirty plus years, I've never bought a bottle for myself.

Greg, I largely agree with this though I might tweak it a bit. Prefaced with 'it depends on the food and person's palate', I do think there are some characteristics that matter. For example, big, gloopy, alcoholic messes of wines don't pair with much, in my experience. They can just overwhelm the food, even a big steak.

Certain characteristics 'can' be food-friendly; well-structured wines to cut the fat in a steak, for example. Or a bit of residual sugar to pair with spicy food (but, of course 'not in all cases').

In that regard I think the part that of the OP that doesn't make sense is it's maybe the wrong question. Because it's less about regions and more about styles/characteristics, and those can cross region.

Champagne is the most versatile, but the question makes little sense...

The only thing that I generally try to avoid is high alcohol. For me that's anything north of 14.5%. I can look past that for a zin to go with my burger, but in most cases, high alcohol mars food - or at least mars me such that I can't taste the food.

With these three words, you have pretty much nailed what I especially enjoy in a wine: I can enjoy a glass or two (maybe more) by itself, and the wine is just as enjoyable when paired with a pretty wide range of food. As to your specific recommendations, I am "on the learning curve" with both, but can already see your point.

With respect, I’m struggling with the concept here. The results will be biased by what foods people like.

I also don’t see why wines that are good without food should be discounted. Yes there are specific wines that could be meh on their own but come alive with food (we had a Greek rose the other day that filled that brief). It’s a useful thing to know of an individual wine. But I’m not sure I’d apply the concept to a whole category. I struggle with the thought of white burgundy not being good on its own for example.

Many categories missing. Rioja. Rhône. Alsace. Sherry. Dry Riesling. To name but a few.

Yeah I know. There's a lot of love for it! But while it's OK, I never buy it - seems too much like a cross between beer and wine that can't quite decide what it wants to be. And I'm not a fan of beer, which I've been told is un-American!

But seriously, the alcohol level doesn't really matter if the wine is good. I've had some shockingly high-alcohol wine that turned out to be really good and had I looked at the ABV beforehand, I might have had a bias that wasn't merited. A lot of people have alcoholic drinks with dinner and they seem pretty happy.

Nor does acid seem to have all that much to do with it although I know it's received wisdom to believe that a wine with high apparent acidity is a better wine for food than another wine. That's another blanket statement that is very dependent on the particulars. Sometimes those wines just suck and you need a strong flavor in your food to kill the taste! And sometimes you just don't want that acidity. Riesling for example. I love the stuff but if I had to drink it every day, or even every week, I'd be pretty unhappy. Many things are like that, chocolate for example - it's good once in a while.

I don't question the conventional wisdom that Champagne is the most flexible pairing.

However, if the question is what wine benefits the most from being paired with food, I find that food improves white burgundy and other high acid dry whites the most.

I'm with Greg here on Champagne or any other sparkling white for that matter. It's not that I won't drink it, but I don't seek it out. I do like beer though.... a lot, although not the generic macro so called lagers which is what brought me to wine in the first place.

Back to the Original question though, there is no single drink or style of drink that works across all the foods I regularly cook and eat so it is pointless being generic.

An almost impossible question to answer, but if I had to choose one wine that would be the only wine I would have available to drink with food it would probably be be a pinot edging out a Kabinett.

what wine is only so-so most of the time, but absolutely blossoms when paired with food? . . . I voted for Chianti. To me, it's a supremely versatile food wine and is mostly good but not great on its own . . . but is awesome with the right food.
Brandon, I agree with you and I have had wines like this. Chianti is a great example.

I actually agree with this and understand the op’s question. I’m not generally a big Sangiovese fan, but I think it’s a lot better with food.

This explains why your such a miserable cynical person always looking to be critical and belittle people.

But some bubbly and cheer up

Awesome!

But will it affect my spelling, punctuation, and syntax?

Hey Chris - exit only!

I did have some sparkling Sauv Blanc from New Zealand a couple weeks ago. Didn't but it though. [cheers.gif]
