Once the holiday meal is established, it's time to move on to choosing wine. You then have to find the best bottle for a successful food and wine pairing. Let's then turn to rosé wines , and discover how to invite them to your tables successfully.
Rosé wine as an aperitif
Rosé wine is generally the star of summer aperitifs , but it is also perfect to start a festive meal. It is then necessary to choose it fresh and light, so that it does not saturate the taste buds before even sitting down at the table. Friendly, fruity and tangy, direct pressing rosé wine is ideal for starting your holiday meal in style.
Rosé as a starter
As with an aperitif, rosé wine is a wine of choice to serve as a starter . It goes quite easily with all kinds of dishes, and allows you to be discreet, but tasty, before launching into more expressive wines with the main course. This type of wine is particularly recommended to accompany starters based on seafood or fish , and why not with oysters or your salmon toast? And if you want to surprise your guests, opt for a rosé wine to accompany your foie gras .
Rosé wine and fish
Tradition dictates that fish is served with white wines, but you can also go off the beaten track by choosing a rosé wine with subtle fruit notes. Its freshness will be very appreciated, and will highlight the delicate flavors of the fish. Of course, the bottle of wine must be chosen according to the fish, its cooking, or even the sauce that will accompany it. Generally speaking, fruity and fresh rosés will be real allies.
Rosé wines with meat and poultry
If you used to serve light red wines with your Christmas poultry, this year you can be original by opting for a bottle of rosé wine . This more subtle and lighter choice is a guarantee of quality for your poultry , but also for your white meats, which will be highlighted without the wine taking over in the mouth.
If you opt for a more flavorful meat, such as duck, then choose a maceration rosé wine , which is more expressive and more aromatic.
Rosé wines with cheese
Many gourmets think they are making the right choice by serving red wines with cheese. Still, it's not the best pairing, and white wines and rosé wines make better pairings. You can then serve a pressed rosé wine with a fresh, young cheese , such as goat's cheese, and opt for a bleeding rosé wine with characterful cheeses , such as Saint-Marcellin, or Brillat-Savarin.
Rosé wines for dessert
To end your holiday meal in style, dessert should be enhanced by a fresh, not too sweet rosé. The fruit aromas will be pleasant, and the freshness will allow the meal to end lightly. And for a festive side, why not turn to a sparkling rosé ?
