Barbecue chicken tastes sweet, caramelized skin, spices, and smoke.
The wine choice depends on the marinade and sauce.
Genereally BBQ chicken pairs best with light red wines or full bodied whites.
BBQ chicken with herbs pairs well with young and fruity reds like Beaujolais or Grenache.
Simple BBQ chicken pairs best with Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.
Savoury BBQ chicken pairs well with medium-bodied reds like Côtes du Rhône or Tempranillo.
Sticky BBQ sauce calls for fruity reds like Zinfandel and Primitivo or a slightly sweet Rosé.
