“What wine goes with this dress?”

09 May, 2014

Nothing goes with a glass of Champagne quite like… a gold sequin jacket and a pair of lace trousers, according to the French wines with Style team.

For years experts have anguished over creating perfect food and wine matches, but FWWS has taken it one step further in a bid to marry fashion with oenology.

In its latest video Gerard Basset MW, one of the most respected wine experts in the world, is given the unusual task of accessorising a model with the perfect glass of wine.

He sits by the side of a swimming pool while the model poses in four different outfits, and he advises on what goes well with each.

A pastel dress and a glass of Fleurie are a match made in heaven, according to Basset, while a rosé from Corsica will complement a bright bomber jacket, black top, little shorts and a bum bag. 

Watch below for the full list of recommendations.
