On-Screen Menu: Our Editors’ Latest Favorite Starring Roles for Wine

March 10, 2023

Episode 3 of The Last of Us, based on the blockbuster video game franchise, finds humanity in drinking wine and enjoying the finer things.

The episode begins with Bill in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Bill, a “doomsday prepper,” has secured his home and surrounding town with myriad booby traps and security cameras, and enjoys the inventory of every shop in town, even finding time to enjoy a peaceful bottle of wine and a home-cooked meal most nights. That’s until Bill meets Frank (after Frank quite literally falls into one of his traps). The reclusive Bill begrudgingly allows Frank in for dinner and prepares an impressive meal of what looks to be confit-style rabbit with root vegetables paired with a bottle of Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages. “A man who knows to pair rabbit with Beaujolais,” Frank admires.
