This warm, flavorful dish is perfect for the colder months. Poulet Grand-mère is a true comfort food that can be served with crisp potatoes or over egg noodles. The rich and earthy flavors from the bacon, mushrooms and herbs makes this a lovely pairing with our 2019 Fifteen 10 White, or our 2018 Pinot Noir. This dish can also be made in a Dutch oven.
