Food Pairing: Femme Fatale

Bordeaux Rosé, Merlot

Expert Tips

Chef Bruce Hill of Bix restaurant in San Francisco loves to serve Grilled Calamari, Pancetta and Frissé Salad Dressed with two soft-cooked Quail Eggs with this delicious Rosé.

Winemaker Esme Johnstone says, "Spicy foods go particularly well with Femme Fatale. It takes the edge off it in just the right way. But fresh Brittany Lobster simply grilled with fresh herbs is also divine!"
