The Best Wine with Filet Mignon

Filet mignon is a lean steak with delicate flavors. Red wines that aren't too high in tannins pair best.

Bordeaux is a classic pairing. Merlot-based ones from the right bank are best with softer tannins and red berry flavors.

Rioja Reserva is a great option for grilled filet mignon. This Tempranillo-based wine is aged for at least 3 years.

Earthy Pinot Noir is a good choice too, especially when serving your filet mignon with a mushroom sauce.

Oaked Chardonnay can work for simple preparations, creamy sauces, or if you're having surf and turf.
