Which characteristics of strawberry for which wine?

Strawberry is a rather sweet fruit. We feel in its taste a slight acidic note nevertheless, which must be taken into account to associate it with the wine. Everything will also depend on its preparation. The tartlet or tart probably deserves a sweet red wine. Its sugar and fruit will support the cream and taste of the fruit. Plain strawberries can be served with a rosé and sweet sparkling wine. The effervescence will cut through the acidity and the fruit will stand out perfectly despite the fact that some people are not in favour of bubbles at the end of the meal. A good compromise for many types of preparation can come from an effervescent red wine. Sweet, slightly sparkling and fruity, it combines all the advantages for a dish like strawberries.

The wines to choose

You can therefore opt for an appellation like Maury, whose sweet red wines go very well with desserts made with red fruits. There is also a sparkling rosé wine that can be served with plain strawberries that are not too sweet, such as Jeaunaux Robin rosé Champagne. Try also a sweet rosé wine, which will go perfectly with a very simple dessert made with strawberries, such as rosé d'Anjou.

A bay that makes you happy

The wild strawberry, a miraculous berry that has long been cultivated in Europe and North America, is unanimously accepted. The Romans were already very fond of this "false fruit" since they picked it or cultivated it according to the regions. The season that begins in spring allows us to enjoy this delicacy of nature in several forms: tartlet, ice cream or sorbet, natural or chocolate. Everyone has their favourite recipe, but everyone is satisfied. Remember, strawberries are the favourite fruit of the French, since about one in two people will tell you how much they admire them. In France we find our famous Gariguettes de Plougastel, the Marat des bois but also PGIs such as the Fraise du Périgord, or the red label of the Fraise du Lot-et-Garonne.
