Wine Tip

Moulin AC
The assertive tannins of this young Bordeaux are the ideal pairing for the dark flavors of a nicely browned steak.
The wine has a subtle fruitiness to round off its flavor profile. Bordeaux and red meat – simply a match made in heaven. Decant this wine and drink it at 16 – 18°C / 60 – 65°F to appreciate its full complexity.

Step 1

The perfect steak

Preheat the oven to 60°C (140°F). Preheat the grill. Wrap each potato in some aluminum foil and place on grill for approx. 1 hour. Turn every 20 min. to ensure even cooking.
