Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc are great choices for Salmon. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. The Xavier Monnot Bourgogne Les Grandes Coutures Chardonnay with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 30 dollars per bottle.
Xavier Monnot Bourgogne Les Grandes Coutures ChardonnayChardonnay Les Grandes Coutures is from three plots bordering Meursault with vine ages from 15 to 51 years. Soils are predominantly argile (clay), bringing weight and texture to this Bourgogne Blanc.The 2015 vintage shows aromas of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla.White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
