White wines are mostly consumed as aperitifs. If possible, have it light and sweet but you can also choose soft. Always try to serve it fresh and sparkling. As appetizers, dry white wines pair perfectly with seafood, salads, and raw vegetables, seasoned with lemon and olive oil.
White wines and main dishes are also great complements. It is common to have white wines with white flesh meat and fish. A sweet wine is what you need if you are having chicken. Full bodied white wines, on the other hand, is perfect to have with turkey. Delices and Gourmandises recommend a Riesling or a Pinot Gris to have with spicy foods and chicken curry. Aromatized and highly flavored foods usually go with sweet wines in order to balance the taste.
White wines to pair with desserts and cheeses
Delices and Gourmandises proposes you try a pairing of white wines and cheeses. Sweet and fruity wines go with goat cheese perfectly. It is also possible to have wines and cheese by combining products from the same terroir such as a Munster with a Gewurtztraminer or a Comté with a Jura wine.
White wines are also great addition to fruit desserts. Choose a dry sparkling wine to pair with pies or with charlotte cakes.
