As an elegant, well bred Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the 2005 Domaine la Millière is an easy wine to bring to table. It pairs equally well with simple fare as it does with complex sauces. If ever there were a wine for all seasons, it would have to be Domaine la Millière’s 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Red meats pair easily with Michel Arnauds’s brilliant offering. Consequently, beef tenderloin, served medium-rare, with thickly sliced portabella mushrooms in a red wine, shallot, and Herbes de Provence reduction, makes for a memorable evening with this wine. A braised lamb shank gets our nod, too. Roasted red or orange peppers stuffed with sautéed portabella mushrooms, roasted eggplant, tomato, caramelized onions, and a healthy crumbling of feta cheese, provides another winning accompaniment. For an equally tasty treat, consider stuffing the peppers with a flavorful risotto or orzo with plenty of cheese and herbs. Roast duckling, game, and even a simple panini, stuffed with slices of pork roasted with garlic, salt, rosemary, and sage offer exquisite accompaniments to Domaine la Millière’s wonderful Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Bon appétit!
