Beef Tataki with Chambolle Musigny!

January 24th, 2015


A great match between this 2011 Chambolle-Musigny Burgundy by Michel Gros and the nearly raw beef tataki -gyu no tataki-. While the wine is still a bit austere on the palate, its gentle oak influence combines nicely with the cooked outer layer of the beef. The fruity pinot noir character and the acidity combine perfectly through the red interior of the slices. A touch of yuzu kosho brings out a flavor explosion in the wine, though its subtle complexity is overshadowed.
