Recommended wine: Bordeaux, Champagne, White Burgundy
French works really well with Bordeaux, Champagne, and White Burgundy. 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 Chateau Pindefleurs St-Emilion Bordeaux. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 22 dollars per bottle.

Drunk as a young wine, Château Pindefleurs allows its fresh fruitiness to blossom. Kept in a cellar, it unrolls a long and silky taste in the mouth, the mark of the Grands Crus of Saint-Emilion.Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
