Here are the best wines to pair with a variety of Asian dishes, from Chinese classics to Thai curries to Japanese noodle bowls
Most Chinese markets and take-out restaurants sell some form of cooked Peking or barbecued duck. It's easy to call ahead and pick it up on the way home. Then just serve it with a flavorful homemade broth and fresh noodles.
Recipe: Chinese Roast Duck Noodle Soup
Pair with: Bordeaux blend. The profile of Bordeaux grapes—dark blackberries, spice, pepper—loves spicy Peking duck. And the touch of aromatic Cabernet Franc in our bottle pick is a great foil for the ginger and sesame in the broth. Recommended bottle: Thomas Fogarty 2006 “Skyline Red” (California).
