Wine and leek and salmon tart
The puff pastry gives, by its crunchiness, relief to the appliance and its ingredients, all of which have a melting and tender texture.
The milky and buttery aromatic notes bind together and attenuate the sharper characters of leek and smoked fish. A Pouilly Fumé, which combines citrus and smoky nose, will reinforce this dimension while reducing the smell of fish and leek; on the palate, its liveliness will bring freshness in contrast with the sweetness of the cream. If a rosé St Nicolas de Bourgueil goes in the same direction on the palate, on the other hand its scents in which the fruity mingle with nuances evoking the pepper will highlight the vegetal dimension of the tart.
