Which wine is best for boeuf bourguignon? Choose a wine that you would enjoy drinking. A Burgundy or a Pinot Noir are great choices but any good quality dry red wine will work.
How To Make A Bouquet Garni: A bouquet garni is a few sprigs of fresh herbs tied together with kitchen twine or wrapped in a cheesecloth bag. It infuses the stew with flavor as it cooks and can be easily removed at the end. For this stew, I suggest you use one dried bayleaf, three large sprigs of fresh thyme and one large sprig of fresh rosemary.
Prepare this ahead of time: This can be made a day ahead. Like most stews it will be even better the next day, after the flavors have had time to meld. Once it cools to room temperature, transfer it to a covered container and refrigerate it. Reheat it, covered, at a very low simmer, until heated through.
