Lay and Wheeler would recommend drinking the 2012 Morgon, Côte du Py, Château des Jacques, Domaine Louis Jadot with this mouthwatering filet steak https://www.laywheeler.com/home/wineshop/product.aspx?prodid=0712036A. This beautiful Beaujolais has an inviting and complex fragrance of wild cherries and damsons with almond, spice & game. It is smooth, yet rich and textural with great balance.
Though you can follow this procedure with almost any tender cut of beef (and with chicken breasts, if that direction appeals to you), it's a perfect treatment for tenderloin medallions (filet mignon). (Photo: Craig Lee for The New York Times)
