The dish consists of a fondue pot placed on the center of the table and filled with hot oil into which diners dip cubes of good quality beef to cook them. Several choices of dipping sauces are provided on the side.
Fondue Bourguignonne and Wine
With a variety of different sauces to dip the meat in, most including mayonnaise, there is really no ideal wine pairing for a fondue bourguignonne. A safe choice is to serve a relatively light red, such as a Rully or Mercurey from the Côte Chalonnaise, or even a Beaujolais. In any case, avoid strong, tannic wines which will clash with the sauces. Another original option would be to serve a Marsannay rose!
