Wine to accompany these fish verrines
This preparation, with its double smoky-milky dimension and the presence of the tangy character brought by the fruit and the vinegar, has a
a little Nordic air that suits the season.
We can look in this direction for a possible harmony by choosing a white grain brandy, which we will serve struck, such as an Aquavit which will bring relief and length to the whole with its alcohol.
In terms of wine, this same contribution should be sought rather on the side of the acidity and freshness of certain whites, such as those made from the Sauvignon grape in the northern region; thus, a Reuilly with its citrus notes will lend itself happily to such an alliance.
Price ideas (in 2013): Aquavit 16 to 30 €, Reuilly 6 to 12 €
