I know there is a lot of received wisdom about what sorts of wines to pair with, say, beef or fish or chicken, though I couldn't quote any of it off the top of my own head, as I am the furthest thing from a gourmand in this world. Nevertheless, I am wondering: are there the same kind of "traditional" or "standard" wine recommendations for pairing with horse meat, and what are they?
Having not had horsemeat myself, I can only inquire with one who has: they found it to taste like bland but tender red meat. So, use mild reds for pairing like you would for beef tenderloin:
- Cabernet Sauvigonon
- Pinot Noir
- Lighter-bodied Shiraz/Syrah
