Spicy Seafood

Today my love of cooking takes centre stage on this wine blog. Pairing a wine with  food is not overly tricky.  When people tell you that the first rule of pairing is “that there are no rules” don’t believe them. If the food is spicy then the wine needs a touch of sweetness. For dinner I paired white wine from the Loire with the grilled shrimp.

Remy Pannier Muscadet – everyday white

How chic is French wine?  If you can casually drop the words Chateauneuf du Pape and Pouilly Fuisse at a party you elevate your party status to “interesting” at least.

French wines are classic, like French cuffs and berets.  This dry white wine from the Loire is a great everyday white.

Description
This wine is from the Loire near the Atlantic.  I love a white wine that is flinty and minerally.   This one also has some floral and citrus that balances nicely with the “geology” character.  You will wish you had somebody shucking oysters for you right now.
