Pinot Noir, Oregon
A younger, dry Pinot Noir, with its spicy aromas and fine acidity, complements the classic Burgundian dish.
Cut beef into large cubes. Toss beef in flour, salt, and pepper; set aside. Slice bacon into strips, chop onion and carrot, mince garlic, and cube potatoes; if shallots are large, halve them.
