On the cellar side, wine to accompany the stuffed onions
With a simple title for a recipe with rich sensory characteristics, this dish plays on contrasts between maritime and earthy, vegetal and smoky, soft and crunchy, smooth and floury. As long as they have a minimum of expression and character, many types of wine can go well with this preparation depending on the size you want to enhance. If we want to highlight the vegetal and a certain freshness, we will choose an appellation made from the Sauvignon grape variety, such as a Coteaux du Giennois with notes reminiscent of the blackcurrant bud. In contrast, the roundness on the palate and the ripe, milky aromas of a Saint Véran will go in the direction of the stuffing.
