bourgogne rouge with sea scallops.

while preparing fresh cherry tomatoes and crimini mushrooms for a dinner of linguine and scallops, enjoyed my early ration of wine, a Bourgogne Rouge (J.Roty "Cuvee Pressonier", 2004) and thought, this would work as well as a white wine for the last minute poach of the scallops. escargot get cooked with vin rouge, after all, was part of my rationale.

worked out quite well. a compatible wine was chosen to drink with the meal, a 2005 Confuron Cotetidot Bourgogne, one of the best we've had in that genre.
