Don’t fear the fat. Both goose and duck are fatty birds but little remains in the finished roasts. What does, makes the meat incomparably delicious.

Goose offers dark meat that is flavourful, densely textured and moist. The fowl’s heightened savouriness and the deeply flavourful sides call for assertive wine pairings with crisp acidity. For white wine, look for the apple and pear, peppy acidity and a light kiss of oak found in refined Chardonnays. Henry of Pelham Estate Chardonnay VQA ( VINTAGES ESSENTIALS 268342, $21.95) makes a superb match. Or choose a red wine with berry and spice notes, supple texture and light tannins like those of Famille Perrin Réserve from the southern Rhône ( VINTAGES ESSENTIALS 363457, $16.95).
