from the chef

Combining fish with red wine is very delicate. The key to this marriage is the port and licorice as well as the way the fish is cooked.
The aromas of the dish resonate beautifully with those of a lovely red wine, which must be sophisticated and elegant. A silky, voluptuous red Givry would be the ideal pairing.
