|a White wine : a DO Penedes - Loxarel Cora-Muscat/Chardonnay- 2005 - The acidity and the alcohol are well-balanced. Its aftertaste is persistent and with fruit notes. Flowery, roses and honeysucklem with aromas that remind us of Muscat grapes. Dry fruit appears, represented by hazelnut.
The fresh grape aromas entertain a nice pasta, risotto or paella dish

a Rosé wine : a AOC Corsica - Bio Wine - Domaine de Torraccia - 2004 - Nielluciu / Sciaccarellu / Grenache - This dry and aromatic rose wine is a perfect choice when there is both red meat in brown sauce and raw seafood on the table, as it can go along with both extreme. It matches best with any salad and, of course, those who had the chance of discovering Corsica will enjoy it best when chilled as an aperitif with good friends on a veranda.
