A dinner with beef and red wine is no longer unfamiliar to food enthusiasts in Vietnam. However, choosing the right Marques de Casa Concha wine to pair with different cuts of beef is not easy, as each cut carries different flavors and diverse experiences. From tender and succulent sirloin to flavorful ribeye steak, let us unveil the perfect pairings with the rich and diverse collection of Marques de Casa Concha wines.

Rib Eye

Also known as lomo vetado in Chile, this naturally tender cut is the juiciest and fattiest of them all. And considering that in the world of meat, more fat equals more flavor, the idea here is that the intensity of the wine and the flavor of the meat should match up. This makes Cabernet Sauvignon a safe bet. With its aromas and flavors of black fruits like cassis and blackberries, firm tannins, rich acidity, and a hint of smokiness, Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust red wine whose tannins will cut through the juiciness and richness of the meat, balancing each bite.

Filet Mignon

This is another classic cut that stands out mainly for being tender and very low in fat, which means less flavor, but it is still a crowd favorite thanks to its smooth texture. Especially when cooked to perfection. For a steak with these characteristics, light red wines work very well, ones that have the same “weight” as the meat on the palate. Marques de Casa Concha Merlot, for example, is a wine that is ample and concentrated on the palate, with soft, elegant, and silky tannins that accompany a great fruit expression on the palate, making it very appealing for lean cuts like this.

Skirt Steak (Entraña)

Very popular in Chile, this cut corresponds to the diaphragm of the animal and has a narrow and elongated shape. With a high percentage of fat and a tough skin covering it, it is cooked over high heat on the grill for a few seconds to keep it juicy. This cut, somewhat fibrous but very flavorful, pairs well with wines that are also flavorful like Marques de Casa Concha Syrah, which will contribute complex flavors of cherry, blueberries, and licorice, while its tannins cleanse the palate.

T-Bone

This traditional American cut consists of a piece that has a T-shaped bone, with one side containing Ribeye and the other Tenderloin. While the Ribeye is a piece found between the ribs of the animal (rich in fat and flavor), the Tenderloin is rather lean but very tender. For this cut, we recommend highly aromatic and flavorful red wines like Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere. This vibrant wine has a lot of character and personality, making it a great match for the T-Bone.

Sirloin

This is another very popular cut for grilling because it is usually both tender and flavorful, although it has a bit more connective tissue (cartilage) than other cuts. It is relatively lean, often cut into thick steaks, and pairs well with less intense wines. For this cut, we recommend a wine with soft, silky, and elegant tannins, like Marques de Casa Concha Merlot, with delicate aromas of black fruits and subtle hints of sweet spices.

The quality and flavor of Marques de Casa Concha have won over even the most discerning wine enthusiasts, changing many people's perceptions of the image of premium Chilean wines. One of the devotees of Marques de Casa Concha worth mentioning is the footballer Doan Van Hau. At the dream wedding of groom Van Hau and bride Hai My, Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon was the only wine chosen by the couple to accompany the rich and classy menu of the evening. Not only possessing a captivating rich flavor, Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon also contributed to adding an elegant touch to the celebration.
