Artichokes contain a chemical call “Cynarin” that makes things taste sweeter, like wine. So it can be tricky to pair it. I suggest a dry wine. Perhaps a Chenin Blanc from South Africa. You get the dryness to counter act the sweetness of the “Cynarin” and also the slate in the soil produces a great mineral quality to the finish.
