  • You can give a try to medium-bodied Southern French or Spanish Red such as – Côtes du Roussillon– or a Merlot
  • If you are having something like grilled or smoked chicken with barbecue sauce – take a more full-bodied red with a touch of sweetness like a Shiraz, Grenache or Zinfandel. (Not too big or oaky though. Chicken isn’t steak!)
  • With chicken in a red wine sauce like coq au vin drink a similar wine to the one you use for the recipe. Burgundy is traditional but I’d probably go for a red from the Rhône or Languedoc
