We enjoyed another Supercook favourite tonight – Ragoût de Bœuf aux Pois Chiches. This is a lovely Beef Stew with Chick Peas in a tomato-based sauce. It is not as strongly-flavoured as some beef stews and we looked for a wine that would not overwhelm the meal. We opened a bottle of Alambrado Malbec Tempranillo 2009, a medium-bodied Argentinian red from the Sunday Times Wine Club.
The wine displayed redcurrants, black fruits, smoothness with a spicy edge and was not too intense. It complemented well this savoury but not overly rich stew.
