A Corbières Red Fine with Beef Stifado

We decided to do Beef Stifado from the Slow Cook Book.  Not as much involved as Jamie’s Stifado (see 24th and 25th August 2010), but still quite intense flavours through slow cooking.  We opened a bottle of Château de Caraguilhes Rouge 2010 Corbières from Waitrose.  This Southern French red is a blend of Carignan, Grenache and Mourvèdre and had hints of tobacco on the nose, a sweetish juicy beginning of black and red fruits, with a plummy finish.  We thought the powerful flavours were intensified further by the pairing.  A good, if not stunning match.
