Which Drink to Pair with Pork Belly at La Tour?

You’ve probably seen pork belly on the menu of many restaurants. Ever wonder what to drink with it? Matchingfoodandwine.com suggests 5 different drink choices, and we’ve pinpointed one of each of those selections that you’ll find on the La Tour beverage menu:

Hard Cider.
Try “Grasshop-ah” from Colorado Cider Company. It will surprise you with  aromas of lemon zest, light hops and a citrus kick of lemongrass.

Indian Pale Ale.
La Tour is proud to serve “Titan IPA” from Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver.

Riesling.
Pork belly is quite fatty, so the delicious sharpness of a Riesling really cuts through. Might we suggest a bottle of the 2012 Donnhoff Oberheuser “Bruck” Riesling Spatlese, Anahe, Germany?

Beaujolais.
Based on the gamay grape, Beaujolais is bright & fruity. On the La Tour menu, you’ll find the 2012 Chateau du Moulin-A-Vent Beaujolais.

Côtes du Rhône.
Grenache-based wines also pair well with pork belly. How about the 2012 Feraud-Brunel, Côtes du Rhône Villages?
