Which Alsatian wine for which dessert
There is no real debate: the big winner will be Gewurztraminer, whose opulence and aromatic character make it the best ally for your desserts. Bubbles also have an effect at the end of a meal. They allow a fine end to a beautiful moment of conviviality. Don't forget the Vendanges Tardives with their amplitude and intensity. Whether it is dry cakes, tarts, chocolate recipes or creamier cakes, you will have the choice between : A Riesling Vendanges Tardives which will keep its sweet side by accompanying citrus fruits A Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives which, thanks to the acidity present, will balance creamy desserts, flans, chestnut torches or crème brûlées A mellow Gewurztraminer which will confront the intensity of chocolate or cocoa with its aromatic strength A Crémant on red fruits for its rosé version. Alsatian desserts such as Kougelhofs and other brioches for its white version
Which wine to drink with a chocolate dessert?
Chocolate and wine have one thing in common: tannin. The more cocoa chocolate contains, the more tannin it has. This is why dark chocolate is very powerful. It therefore needs a wine to match it: powerful and luscious. Pinot Gris or Gewurztraminer Sélection Grains Nobles are perfect with dark chocolate. For milk chocolate, you will have to deal with the sugar and a slightly richer palate because it is milky. A pinot gris or a late harvest gewurztraminer are totally adapted thanks to their more present acidity. They will offer a combination of finesse and elegance. For white chocolate with a fatter texture, you should opt for a parallel association rather than an opposite one. A Riesling Vendanges Tardives will bring the balance between the roundness and the refreshing acidity which will go very well together.
