An Interesting Southern French White Very Good with Lemon and Garlic Chicken

2014-03-14 19.38.13Having just returned from a holiday indulging in rich food, we decided on something more restrained and tried Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Garlic from the Best Chicken recipes book.

The chicken is cooked with lots of garlic cloves, lemon, white wine and parsley and we served with a jacket potato and green beans.

Despite the quantity of garlic the dish was fairly mildly flavoured and we paired it with a bottle of Corbieres Blanc, Vieilles Vignes, Dom Roque Sestiers 2012, a Southern French white from the Wine Society.

The wine is made from the Maccabeu grape and we tasted apple and lemon, with good tangy acidity, yet the wine was smooth and almost creamy.  A distinctive and interesting wine that was a very good match with the chicken.
