Recommended wine: Bordeaux, Champagne, White Burgundy
Bordeaux, Champagne, and White Burgundy are my top picks for French. French wine is just as diverse as French food, but you rarely go wrong with champagne. If your meal calls for a white wine, you might also try a white burgundy. For a red, try a red bordeaux blend. You could try Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Rouge. Reviewers quite like it with a 4 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 12 dollars per bottle.
Mouton Cadet Bordeaux RougeA dense red with a pronounced purple tint. The nose is expressive and complex, rich in fresh and ripe fruit aromas, especially red cherry and morello cherry, with a touch of spice. The attack, on the fruit, is rich and supple, the mid-palate full and fruity on silky tannins. Showing attractive length on the palate, it has a fresh and spicy finish that expresses all the typically character of the merlot and the very high quality of the vintage.
