Interesting wine pairing for foie gras

Charles Yu | Jun 19, 2008 06:21 PM

Sometime ago, in a Alain Ducasse restaurant, I had a very interesting wine pairing of the following 'foie gras' dish - ' Roasted foie gras with port wine reduction sauce and sauteed apples and grapes'. Expecting something sweet like a Sauternes or a late harvest Riesling etc, the dish was paired with a glass of 1982 Trotanoy Pomerol! The pairing was weird but the result was surprisingly compatible!. Has any fellow chowhounder experienced similar 'red wine pairing' with foie gras or am I the first?
