SAVORY CLAFOUTIS AND SAUVIGNON BLANC
Clafoutis is traditionally a French dessert composed of cherries baked in a sweet souffléd custard. The method lends itself beautifully to savory options like the Savory Goat Cheese and Sage recipe in this post. Pair this with a beautiful Sauvignon Blanc and you have a simple, elegant meal.
Let's start with the Clafoutis, then we can talk about the wine.
Clafoutis are simple and beautiful. Once you roasted your tomatoes, it's simply a matter of combining the ingredients in a baking dish and baking. Since it's a souffléd custard it will come out of the oven nice and puffy and as it cools slightly will settle in the pan.
This is a colorful dish when done, bursting with bright expressive flavors...
Because of the herbs and brightness of the goat cheese, this savory clafouti is a perfect pairing with a Sauvignon Blanc... especially a bright grassy style...
This is a Sauvignon Blanc from France featured on our Mood Wine website.
Here's what we say about this wine:
"An absolutely gorgeous little French Bordeaux that expresses much more fruit than normal for the region. It's reminiscent of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. in fact, with tangerine, gooseberries, and kiwi. This is a juicy succulent wine."
This wine pairs beautifully with this Clafouti thanks to the bright gooseberry, citrusy notes that harmonize with the tangy goat cheese and sage along with the acidic tomatoes in this dish.
