Chicken Rôti and Chinon

I was at Olivier's Butchery in Potrero a few weeks ago and couldn't resist picking up the prepared chicken rôti in the cooler. Olivier's gets the chicken from Field to Family in Petaluma. The chicken is a Poulet Bleu (Blue Foot) breed, raised free range and fed a vegetarian diet. I roasted the bird in a dutch over and voila! it was the tastiest chicken I've had in a long, long time!

And as luck would have it, I still had the remains of a 2006 Phlippe Alliet Chinon from a weekend tasting. A bright, earthy pure Cabernet Franc. It was perfect with the chicken rôti.
