The Best Wines to Pair with Spicy Food

Martha Stewart Living published a helpful piece giving readers some guidelines and specific recommendations, including M de Minuty 2019, when it comes to pairing wine with popular spicy foods.

Rosé is suggested as a smart option to enhance Mexican cuisine, which often features fresh, dried, powdered or even smoked peppers (of ranging heat intensity). The writer explains, “there are several aspects to rosé that make this a fabulous pairing. One key factor of pairing any kind of spicy food with wine is to look for wines that are lower in alcohol: Because alcohol amplifies the sensation of heat, lower alcohol wines can help balance out your palate. Rosé is typically in the 11-13 percent ABV range.” Continuing, “the fact that rosé is a fruit-forward wine style is a nice contrast with earthy and smoky flavors, and serving it chilled is a refreshing counterpart to fiery flavors.”

The “bright, citrusy, and dry” style of M de Minuty 2019 is suggested as a great match to balance out the tangy filling of corn-stuffed poblano chiles. Read the piece and grab the recipe HERE

    Château Minuty is the global leader in Côtes de Provence rosé, and beyond that it can be argued is the most important estate in the history of Provence rosé. The Saint-Tropez based, family owned estate has been, since its founding, one of the quality leaders for the region. Minuty then became one of the most visible producers in the second half of the 20th century, a result of quality production and commercial foresight when no one in the region could imagine the global phenomenon Provence rosé would become. And then in the last two decades, Minuty defined the vision for and led the unbelievable growth in Provence rosé around the globe.
