What to drink with lamb, prime rib or chicken?
With the arrival of warmer weather, Father's Day is the perfect occasion for your first barbecue of the season. To celebrate our dads, we've put together a menu designed to go perfectly with a selection of fine wines. What to drink with tapas, chicken, prime rib or cheese? Discover our suggestions for food and wine pairings to make your Father's Day extra special. And for this special day, U'wine is offering a 10% discount on wine boxes with the code FETEPAPA10.

What should you drink with tapas?

Start the day with tapas: grilled prawn kebabs, cheese gougères and smoked salmon toast. Champagne JM Labruyère Prologue will add a touch of freshness and elegance, thanks to its fine bubbles and aromas of white fruit and brioche. Its well-balanced acidity and liveliness will harmonise perfectly with the varied flavours of the tapas.

What to drink with a grilled chicken salad with citrus fruit?

For a starter, opt for a grilled chicken salad with citrus fruits, garnished with a few rocket leaves and a light lemon vinaigrette. Domaine Pierre Labet Bourgogne Chardonnay Vieilles Vignes - Blanc 2019 will be the ideal companion for this dish. A white Burgundy wine that offers notes of white-fleshed fruit, white flowers and a light woody touch, which will pair harmoniously with citrus fruits and your tender chicken.

What to drink with grilled prime rib?

For the main course, there's nothing like a juicy, flavoursome grilled rib of beef with rosemary new potatoes. Château Picque Caillou 2016 is a Bordeaux red wine with aromas of ripe red fruit, blackcurrant and black cherry, as well as spicy notes. Its tannic structure and aromatic complexity make it the perfect accompaniment to the flavours of barbecued prime rib.

What to drink with herb-flavoured lamb kebabs?

If you're not a fan of beef, you can continue your feast with lamb kebabs marinated in herbs (thyme, rosemary, mint), a real treat. The Sarget de Gruaud Larose 2018, with its aromas of black fruit, liquorice and lightly woody notes, will bring extra depth to the lamb. The supple tannins and long finish of this Bordeaux wine make it a perfect match.

What should you drink with a cheese platter?

For the cheese, offer your guests a varied platter with mature Comté, Brie de Meaux and fresh goat's cheese, for example. Château Picque Caillou - Blanc 2019 is a dry white wine with aromas of white flowers, pear and hints of toasted almond. Its freshness will complement the different textures and flavours of the cheeses.

What should you drink with a fruit tart?

To round off this lunch in style, serve a seasonal fruit tart (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries). Château Picque Caillou 2020, with its red and black fruit aromas, fine tannins and silky mouthfeel, will be the perfect complement to the acidity of the fruit. A harmonious end to the meal!
