Rooster in red wine

Coq au vin rouge recipe

I bought, at Christmas, a rooster at the farm, I found it a bit expensive, but as soon as I carried it, I understood, indeed it weighed almost 6 kg. There were six of us to eat and even if I wanted to eat it twice, I divided it in two: once for a Coq au vin rouge and another time for a coq au vin jaune (which I will present to you on another occasion) ). I had received from Château de Fayolle in Saussignac in Dordogne, a wonderful batch of their production, among the batch there was a red Bergerac cuvée Sang de sanglier, an excellent powerful wine of 14.5 °. This wine has divinely perfumed my Coq au vin rouge, with a wonderful sauce, I still have mouth watering. Frankly, I did not take a lot of risk with this recipe, a quality farmhouse rooster and a wine of a power almost made for this kind of Château Fayolle in Saussignac in the Dordogne a marriage of love with this Coq au vin rouge .
