2. Coq Au Vin

A classic French dish that accentuates the flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon as the wine’s tannins and acidity cut through the richness of this dish. Check out the recipe below: Ingredients:

  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme

  4. Add the remaining oil to the same pan and place the chicken to cook until it turns brown. Remove from the pan after the colour changes.
  5. Again add chicken to the pan with wine, stock, paste, bay leaves, herbs, onions and bacon mixture. Bring the ingredients to a boil.
