Would you like fries with that? Wine expert says a £100 bottle of Grand Cru Chablis goes best with a Big Mac
- Wine expert Alexandra Price paired a Grand Cru Chablis with incredible food
- She insisted her favorite food to go with the drink was a McDonald’s Big Mac
- The bottle of wine costs dinners up to £100, while the burger costs £3.29
A lot of Foodies can choose to pair an excellent Grand Cru Chablis with seared scallops or a nice fillet of turbot swimming in butter.
But a dish that a wine expert swears is the best match for the drink probably won’t be found on the tasting menu of a Michelin-starred establishment — a McDonald’s Big Mac.
Alexandra Price, the head sommelier of London restaurant Bar Crispin, told the trade magazine Big Hospitality: ‘My favorite combination of food and drink? GC (Grand Cru) Chablis and a Big Mac.”
A premium bottle of French dry white typically costs restaurant diners up to £100.
Wine expert Alexandra Price (pictured) swears the best match for the Grand Cru Chablis, which sets guests back £100 for a bottle, is the £3.29 McDonald’s Big Mac
McDonald’s double burger costs £3.29, or £4.79 with chips and soft drink.
Miss Price said: ‘There’s just something really naughty and decadent about pairing a good Chablis with a Big Mac.
“Chablis’s high acid and mineral profile seems to break up the greasiness of the burger and turn something everyday into a special occasion.”
After working at Harrods, Miss Price, who is in her twenties, studied at the London Wine and Spirit Education Trust before becoming manager and head sommelier at Bar Crispin.
The restaurant’s menu features dishes like a slice of pork head, anchovy focaccia, and garlic ice cream.
