Seared liver, potatoes, and bacon are natural partners in this dish from Aux Lyonnais.

Pairing note: The richness of liver calls for rich Bordeaux, like Chateau la Cardonne Haut Medoc 2005 ($25), a medium bodied, smooth, balanced wine with black fruit and anise on the nose and hints of cocoa on the finish. —M.P
