A Côtes du Rhône Red is a Good Match with Jamie’s Pot au Feu

We had a go at cooking Pot au Feu from “Jamie Does”.  This French classic recipe calls for an insane amount of ingredients (and a very large pot!), including beef brisket, pork belly, a whole chicken, Toulouse sausage, root vegetables and herbs.  Jamie describes it as clean tasting and we would agree.
