Châteauneuf du Pape Wine Pairing

Châteauneuf-du-Pape covers 15 different varietals of grapes and is a remarkably flexible wine with food since it suits a Mediterranean-influenced cuisine, while the absence of new oak in many Châteauneufs means they can be enjoyed alongside an even broader range of lighter dishes such as fish, veal, and poultry. The appeal of this wine, beyond its food-friendly qualities, expansiveness, generosity of flavors and sumptuous texture, is the almost addictive attraction of its combined intellectual and hedonistic elements.

Red wines come in a wide variety of styles, from bold and rich, to opulent and sexy, as well as elegant and refined. The diverse styles, coupled with natural freshness and spicy quality of red Chateauneuf du Pape make it perfect to serve with everything from grilled beef, veal, pork, game, duck, sausage and lamb, to stews, braised dishes, cassoulet and rich seafood dishes. Chateauneuf du Pape is also easy to pair with many different Asian dishes as well.

White Chateauneuf du Pape wine makes great food pairings for all types of fish, lobster, crab, shell fish, sushi, veal, crudo, chicken, pork, dishes with cream sauces, select vegetables and a diverse array of hard or soft cheeses.
