Provencal degustation - wine pairing help

mandarin | | May 8, 2012 02:52 AM

I am preparing a 7 course Provencal inspired meal and after some help with wine pairings. I have ideas about style of wine (feedback appreciated) as well as any particular brands/suggestions would be great. Menu below. I would like to provide all French wines, but not essential.

Stuffed Zucchini Flower / Marinated Olives - pair with champagne

Delicate crab meat served with a velvety asparagus puree - a pinot gris or dry riesling

French Goats cheese wrapped in Fuille de brick pastry on a bed of mesclun leaves with a drizzle of honey walnut vinaigrette - Semillon

Seared duck breast served with sweet potato swirls, watercress & orange madeira reduction - Pinot noir

Oven Baked Lamb rack encrusted with Herbs de provence served with artichoke mousse
- -Shiraz or Grenache

Truffle infused Triple cream Brie served with rosemary pears, radicchio & truffle honey - Merlot

3 styles of strawberry compote served with lemon mousse & basil cookies - Gewürztraminer
