Bouvet Ladubay Excellence Brut Rosé
People who read a lot are called “voracious readers,” and sometimes it feels like I’m eating hungrily through book after book, digesting stories and satisfying my hunger for a good read. Kate Young brings the consumption of literature closer to reality in “The Little Library Cookbook:” she picked out dishes, dinners, snacks, and cakes from 100 classic books and developed recipes for each one. Today being National Raspberry Tart Day, I found just the recipe in her book, baked it, and paired it with Bouvet-Ladubay Excellence Rosé. The raspberry tart comes from the Queen of Hearts in “Alice in Wonderland,” and I think the queen would have loved the Bouvet Rosé, or at the very least spared my head. The bubbles worked perfectly with the custard raspberry tart, which was not very sweet and went well with the rosé’s dosage of 13 gr/l of sugar; and the notes of fresh red fruits were the perfect match with the raspberries.
