I could swear that I posted this already...

My Easter dinner will be a fete from Brittany ...

beginning with chestnut soup

a mixed green veggie dish with a Muscadet dressing

rabbit with chanterelles (substituting wild shrooms).

What wine would you recommend?

Wish I could come up with a name for ya, but a dry, red wine would be my suggestion with your meal.

Unless of course, Deb, has a better suggestion.

Just which bunny are you planning to fricassee there, poe?

As long it is not our favorite long-eared galloot, I'll make a wine suggestion. Since rabbit is white meat and fairly mild in flavor, I think a white burgundy would go well. It really depends on the sauce you are planning to serve with it.

OY!


GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!


Actually, rabbit is fairly strongly flavoured - I would go with a really rich, buttery chardonnay - none of these wussy non-oaked ones that the creampuffs here in Oz are going for.


Or a soft red - cabernet sauvignon or such...

Deb,..you're not a galoot!!

You're my favorite little cottontail,...I'm being extra nice, because I want good things in my Easter basket Very Happy


OK, wine with rabbit,...you could go either way, but since you're having wild mushrooms, my inclination would be a good medium bodied red. The grape would be up to you,..I have a penchant for good Rioja, which still can be pretty reasonable. A Dolcetto, Cotes du Rhone or Pinot Noir would be next in line (on my list).

Hope this helps!
I can help suggest more specifically if ya want!! Very Happy

I don't think wine is appropriate for bunny. Shouldn't it be something with "hops"?

The bunny doesn't like beer, although a Belgian-style rabbit stew with fresh hops would probably be quite good. I figure GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR is the best whine to serve with bunny.
