Wine Pairing for the recipe of John Dory with Mediterranean Flavours

„I suggest a white Burgundy style, for example a Vougeot „Clos du Prieuré“ Domaine de la Vougeraie of the vintage 2013.

This wine is old world in origin but new world style in style. Which means, you get a really intense and full-bodied wine that has a rich oak character and fine balanced acids that marry with the Provençal ingredients of eggplant, leek and tomatoes and the wine is still refreshing enough to pair with the delicate flavours of the fish.

The structure of this full-bodied chardonnay also combines well with the „vierge“ dressing (olive oil, tomatoes and fresh lemon juice) that adds refreshment and vitality to the dish and the palate.” – Frédéric Woelffle
