Beef Wellington Wine Pairings

Beef Wellington
Notes: These days Beef Wellington often omits the foie gras covering to the outside of the beef, but nearly always includes a covering of Duxelles, the mixture of finely chopped onions, mushrooms and herbs that have been sauteed in butter, so we're looking for a medium to full-bodied red, that has these tastes in mind as well as paring with the juicy beef. French pinot noir burgundies will pair extremely well, as would some new-world choices of merlot or cabernet sauvignon.
