A classic way to start of your Christmas dinner is with carpaccio. Carpaccio has a very delicate
taste that’s why the wine shouldn’t overpower this.
Perfect wine combinations: light Pinot Noir, Touraine or Spätburgunder from New Zealand
As a first course you don’t want a heavy taste, which makes pappardelle with slices
of smoked salmon and asparagus tips with a delightful wine a good combination.
Perfect wine combinations: a not too heavy Chardonnay from Chile, Uruguay or Southern France
For this course you want to go all out with a taste full of character and you can do that by serving a pork tenderloin with ham and mushrooms.
Perfect wine combinations: oaked Chardonnay, Rosé Côtes de Provence from South-Amercia or for more spunk a red wine
A delightful side dish would be a ratatouille with Jerusalem artichoke.
Perfect wine combinations: rosé or white Côtes de Provence for more body
