Day #365 of the year.

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin

BACON – forbidden to some, but personal heaven to me. Today is National Bacon Day and I have my cast iron pan loaded and ready to celebrate. In my experience, the best place to buy bacon is in your city’s Polish or German butcher shop. If you have never been to one you won’t be able to imagine the array of choices and flavors available. A Slab of bacon cut to order is the best way to go; supper market vacuum-packed bacon is just for emergency. I will grill my 1inch custom cut Hungarian Style bacon (covered in fine paprika) and pair it with Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin that is equally as sublime and velvety as this cut of meat – Cheers!

Tasting Notes

Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin reflects the quality characteristics of the commune—deep color with a multifaceted berry and red fruit bouquet, a full tannic structure and a mellow texture that carries into a lasting finish.

Food Match
