A Côtes du Rhône Red is Very Good with Roast Pork

Teresa roasted a lovely, full-flavoured joint of pork and served it with roast potatoes, green beans, spring greens, carrots and swedes.  A nice change.  We enjoyed the pork with a bottle of Arc du Rhône 2009, a Côtes du Rhône Villages red from Waitrose.  The wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan and was smooth with black fruits and a spicy edge.  The wine was full-bodied and rich but did not overwhelm this particular joint of meat.  A very good match.
