World's Best Sommelier vs. World's Worst Customer
While Aldo Sohm paired wines, Frank Bruni played the role of difficult diner and Eric Ripert supplied the fabulous recipes.
Sohm's Pairing: White Burgundy
Pairing Lesson: With mild fish like monkfish, the sauce or broth can drive the pairing. A luxe white Burgundy (made with Chardonnay) is a great match for the miso-spiked broth here. Sohm also likes red Burgundy with the dish, because it's light- bodied but deeply flavored.
