Bourguignon beef (Boeuf Bourguignon), also called Burgundy beef, is a classic stew braised in red wine. The secret of Bourguignon beef is a slow cooker.

Bourguignon Beef Origin

Bourguignon beef originates from Burgundy. It is a Bourgogne region French (my region). The Burgundy region is also well known for exceptionally good wine.

So, naturally, the region’s signature and the historical dish is a combination of these two specialties. Also, the wine is very important. The red wine should be a Burgundy red; a Pinot Noir or Gamay.

The flavors of the wine infuse the beef and beautifully complement the other ingredients, making the stew rich and intensely flavorsome.

Today, beef bourguignon continues to be a favorite amongst foodies all over the world.

What to Drink with a Beef Bourguignon?

A boeuf Bourguignon + red bourgogne is a winning addition. Why complicate your life sonce it works very well. But for this long-simmered dish with flavor thanks to carrots, herbs and bacon, a wine with a certain body is required to keep it up. To be preferred, appellations such as Mercurey, Pommard or Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Wines to avoid
No white matches this dish’s strength and its texture, especially since it is a red wine that gives the sauce its flavor. The subtlety of an old Burgundy with very delicate aromas may go unnoticed.
