Well, Thanksgiving is over and the weekend has come and gone. But, the food has not. There are still plenty of leftovers to be enjoyed. With a fridge full of stuffing, wild rice, collard greens, and turkey, I see different variations of sandwiches and soups in my future. And what do I want to drink with my left overs? A delicious Chateauneuf-du-Pape sounds perfect!
I chose the 2012 Domaine Mathieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape for a number of reasons. This wonderful french wine is soft and light bodied so it is ideal for a fresh soup and salad/sandwich combo. It, also, has the perfect amount of red berry fruit (raspberry and cherry) that will pair up nicely with the turkey, rice, and mushroom-filled stuffing.
I hope everyone enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving!
