Craig Whitson of The Norwegian National Barbecue Team on Mourchon Wines

The following is an excerpt from an appraisal note from Craig to Domaine de Mourchon who had the honour to supply Mourchon wines to accompany the winning efforts of The Norwegian BBQ Team at the World BBQ Championships in Memphis :

“I want to thank you again for the wines. Your people in Houston did an excellent job and the wines arrived in Memphis in perfect shape.

The best news is that these wines are unbeatable with many of the barbecue dishes we were making. The wines are flexible food-wise and really held their own with the sweet/sour flavors we often use. The Grenache grapes are ideal for wines paired with grilled meats, and your wines really did the trick. I have often used Zinfandel with this type of food but I am equally as pleased with the southern Rhône wines. I have always felt a connection between zin and Grenache even though they are very different grapes. Both grapes work well with smoky, spicy, tangy and meaty. I really loved the wines.

In the same way I would use Riesling as a good white wine for many Asian foods, I would choose a Grenache-based Cotes du Rhone as a good all around, very flexible red wine.

I can also inform you that we did very well in the competition with 3rd in Exotic (with rack of lamb), tied 6th in Beef (tenderloin), and our first ever Top 10 ranking in the main category (Pork Shoulder; 8th place). 

It was an honor serving the Domaine de Mourchon wines in Memphis…”
