Kobe aka Wagyu is "The world's best beef".

Kobe is incredibly tender with a unique marble and taste. It comes in both entrecote, outer fillet and tenderloin.

A juicy Kobe requires an elegant wine that can stand up to the bold flavor of the meat. A red wine is needed, but not so big that it overwhelms the meat.

The wine should have both tannins and a good backbone of acidity.

Perfectly blended Bordaux is an enjoyable wine. It pairs well with many dishes, especially Beef.

A round and soft Cabernet Sauvignon is also a good match for this type of meat.

A light red such a Pinot Noir pairs a kobe tartare.

If you want an amazing experince, go for a kobe beef with a full-bodied white wine from Burgundy such Meursault or Montrachet.

Go Local
