Default TN: Wines with bunny (Burg, Loire, Prosecco)

Last night some friends had invited me over for a bunny dinner, since
there was a rabbit in mustard sauce recipe in last Wed's NYT. I
carried over some open wines from night before as well as a Burg. The
fresh wines we tried:

NV Riondo "Pink" Prosecco
Crisp, just a touch off-dry, strawberries, not much on finish, but
pleasant enough bubbles. B/B-

2007 Clos de la Fine Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu
Limes and saline, a bit thin, but decent flavors. B-

2002 Geantet-Pansiot "Champs Perdrix " Marsannay
This is drinking well now, and goes with with the lapin a la moutarde.
Black cherries and raspberries, just a whisper of cocoa, ripe fruit
but with a good backbone of acidity. Probably would fall on modern end
of spectrum, but not overdone or over the top. I really quite enjoy
(as do others) B++

Fun night with friends.

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

I'll have to look for the recipe, but it is a classic of Dijon. For my
part, I find that the lapin a la moutarde that I make pairs best with
serious Cru Beaujolais. Your Marsannay may not be far removed from
that, though.

Hi Dale,
I saved this recipe when I saw it in the times. How was it? Would you do
anything differently from the recipe as presented?

Regards,
Jon

I thought it was a good example, though it wouldn't have bothered me
to have left in the creme fraiche as in Boulud's orginal. I love
recipes with mustard - mustard can be a wine killer, but with braising
or other long cooking methods it is an accent without acridity. Ron
did 2 rabbits, and served over pappardelle. He felt it could have been
a little more sauce, but I thought fine.

Thanks. Off to find some hare.

You probably know this but for the peanut gallery hare and rabbit are
not the same thing, nor would they necessarily go with the same wines
or preparations. (Though hare with mustard sauce sounds good, too!)

Hare is much gamier and generally calls for a pretty big red, whereas
rabbit is very wine versatile, like chicken, depending on the sauce.

There's a hare living somewhere near here I'd like to serve with sauce,
or without. He's a whopper, and can strip bark off a tree near waist high.

Emery,
Actually, I did know that. It was a poor attempt at being witty. A bit too
much Two Hands Bella's Garden the night before to pull it off.
