A Red Bordeaux is Very Good with Slow-Cooked Lamb Shanks

2015-07-05 17.52.32We tried Braemoor slow-cooked lamb shanks in red wine and rosemary gravy from Lidl.  These are cooked sous-vide and we served the lamb shanks with mashed potato and green beans. Very quick to prepare and tasty.

We paired the meal with a bottle of Christian Moueix Bordeaux 2010, a French red from the Wine Society.

This medium-bodied Merlot-based claret had an initial sweetness, followed by mixed berry fruit flavours and smooth tannins.

A very good match with the lamb shanks.
