The French are well known as real connoisseurs of fine food, wine and cheese. In addition, they are the best wine producers in the world. Escargo is traditional food among the French, and since their dinners are always accompanied with wine, we will talk about the combination of this drink with the food of all gourmets. Each time, when we invite guests, there is a problem of the wine choice: which wine will decorate the evening?
White wines are created for light meals, while pink and sparkling wines are better for a celebration with fruits, cheese and light snacks. Red, fragrant and dense wines can be served for a full dinner with spicy meat or fatty soup. The dishes from snails are better matched with young, unripe drinks.
Let us consider several types of escargot, and the varieties of wine that can perfectly emphasize each of them.
Classical receipt of escargot de Bourgogne
Butter, garlic or shallot, the greens and snail’ fillet are the major components of the dish. They give the dish some crème taste. Since the dish has a distinct aroma, the wine has to underline it.
Classic recommendations of wines include white dry, white semisweet, pink semisweet and varieties of sparkling of wines. The traditional dish is served with classic white Chateau, Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Dry or semisweet wines will perfectly shade the flavor, will not overload the taste, and add the cream noted to the sour cream. White bins do not contain a large amount of tannin, so they perfectly emphasize the taste of seafood with cream sauce, salads, vegetable dishes and not very sweet fruits.
Snails in Limousine
This dish is characterized by the shades of a nutty taste. The walnut gives the escargot new original shades. Since the walnut has a pronounced taste, the wine should be less aromatic in order not to drown the taste. Such wines as the Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay can perfectly match this dish.
Another version of the classic escargot is a Somiersky snail. The receipt contains nut-roasted peanut as well. This is also a fragrant component, therefore, less aromatic drink is required.Chablisis is a popular wine, served to snails. This drink is made from the Pinot Blanc grapes type.
