A Loire Sauvignon is Very Good with Jollof Chicken and Rice

For a straightforward midweek meal we tried Jollof Chicken and Rice from Best Chicken recipes.

This is a well-known West African dish and the version we chose involved cooking chicken pieces with garlic, t2014-12-17 17.35.37hyme, canned tomatoes, tomato purée, onion, chicken stock, dried ground shrimps, green chilli and long-grain rice. A pleasant meal, but we would look to try a more flavoursome version next time.

French Sauvignons are often good with dishes with tomato sauces and we opened a bottle of Petit Villebois Sauvignon Blanc 2013, a French white from Naked Wines.

This was crisp with flavours of apples and grapefruit, some minerality and a fresh and tangy finish.  A very good match with the meal.
