A Beaujolais Cru is Good with a Barbecued Fillet Steak

IMG_0222.JPG (2)We bought some fillet steak from Tesco, coated it with crushed black peppercorns and barbecued it medium rare.  A tasty and tender piece of meat that we served with chips and tomatoes.

Some food and wine matching experts recommend pairing steak with Beaujolais Crus.  We opened a bottle of Brouilly Domaine Demiane 2011, a Beaujolais Cru from the Wine Society.

Teresa is not a great fan of Beaujolais and felt it tasted too perfumed for her.  I enjoyed its smooth red fruit flavours and thought it a good match with the steak.  However, neither of us are really into Beaujolais.
