However, fear not, as there are still some solid wine options for this type of dish, such as Sauvignon or Semillon grape-based wines. White wines from Pessac-Leognan in Bordeaux are among the top recommendations for pairing with these dishes; medium-bodied with a creamy texture and subtle notes of citrus fruits. Alternatively try a Riesling from Mosel, Germany, or look further afield and pair with an Australian Chardonnay.
