What wine goes with…?

I love Auchan supermarkets in France. They have everything a girl could ever hope for, a whole aisle dedicated to yogurts and mousses, cheese from all the regions of France, and cheap, delicious French wine. Cool part about it are their wine pairing pictograms. Each wine on display is accompanied with little icons that show what wine can be paired with what dish, anything from shellfish to game to cheese and dessert. I can’t quite make out what that entrée symbol is, maybe some kind of pâté, terrine, or pre-made potato salad type thing? In any case, very cool, very easy and helpful! I guess the message is that in France, even the illiterate should be able to drink a nicely paired glass of wine.
