As far as preferences are concerned, I rarely bought white wine since I prefer the red ones, they are more flavorful. My favourite pairing remains a good merlot or a pinot noir with pork, the taste is heavenly amazing.
I understand what you mean Kandjy though no one forced you into buying the bottles. Instead of being frustrated, you should have been proud of yourself since there are people who can't afford such wines. Another tips, you can keep the bottle once empty, just to show you owned it. As steve said above, it is much a matter of prestige of "owning a piece of history" like a château haut brion wines I bought from Delices and Gourmandises and a cabernet sauvigon based wine Chateau Latour from Millesima few months ago. Though I wish had not open and drink the bottles, we emptied them 3 or 4 weeks after their delivery and up to now I keep the bottles on a big shelf in the lounge. I can see the eyes of some wine geek friends and wine lovers in my family shining when they come to look at them.

Hi guys,

I think this statement from Dawglover sums it up quite easily. In general, the "rules" pair red wine with red meat and white wine with poultry or fish. That said, we serve both and drink whatever we please!
