Editor: Duck breast is tender and flavorful, it calls for a wine that is light bodied and lightly fruity. A Pinot Noir would be the natural pairing with it’s soft tanins and hints of florals, but a Red Burgundy or a California Pinot would also fit perfectly. If you want something fancier, try a Pinot Noir based sparkling wine like a Ferrari Rosé Brut, it’s a bit pricey — about $35 — but it worth it!
