Favourite Fast Food Pairing: McDonalds, 2 x McDoubles

Salut! J’ai une proposition pour toi: “Un Bon Petit Rouge avec Deux Bon Petit Burgers.” You probably don’t need to be bilingual to understand this pairing. Entre Copains (literally, “between friends”) is a collective of like-minded and collaborative producers in France’s Cotes Catalanes. This juicy blend of Carignan and Grenache is savoury and peppery and just begging to be paired with McDonald’s best value baby burgers and shared with a group of friends. Balanced acidity refreshes the palate and primes your taste buds for Burger #2 – because, let’s be real here: one burger is never enough.
