This is arguably the perfect wine for a hot and sunny summer, being white, suitable for serving well chilled, fresh, and relatively low in alcohol at 12% abv. It comes from Gaillac in the South West of France, where Perlé is a speciality style: this is not a sparkling wine, not even 'frizzante', but it has the merest hint of spritz on the tongue to give it extra perkiness.
Le Petit Chat Malin is a pretty ubiquitous brand and is even promoted via its own cutesy web site. Whilst such wines are rarely the most interesting, and I figure my job should mostly be to unearth more obscure gems, on tasting this little wine from the Languedoc I was struck by its really good quality and its sense of authenticity.
Right, cards on the table, I'm a fish addict. Not just because of the nutritional benefits, but because it tastes so good. I like this dish because it's actually filling unlike many fish recipes. So it will definitely satisfy your hungry guest. We also pick the perfect wine to enjoy with this delicious meal.
