Recommended wine: Red Burgundy, Pinot Noir, Beaujolais
Red Burgundy, Pinot Noir, and Beaujolais are my top picks for Coq Au Vin. The red Burgundy is most traditional, but Beaujolais is grown nearby and usually less expensive. Really any dry French red will do! One wine you could try is Buena Vista Chateau Buena Vista Pinot Noir. It has 4.9 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 39 dollars.
Buena Vista Chateau Buena Vista Pinot NoirThis rich Pinot Noir opens with red fruit aromas accented by currants and orange zest. Raspberry and cherry flavors continue through to the palate and are complemented by notes of dark chocolate and blackberry. Showcasing bright acidity and a medium-bodied weight, the finish is long and lingering.
