Wine Pairing

Advice of Wine to combine

Suggest from Sommelier

The intense flavor of the salmon in this dish is offset by the basil, which adds a mentholated note and allows me to suggest two wines. One is a fresh red with low tannins, such as a 1-year-old Pinot Noir: fruity, crisp, agile, and refreshing. The search for affinities leads to a buttery, oak-aged Chardonnay with good acidity to cut the sensation of fat in the fish.
