A Pouilly Fumé Goes Well with Eggplant Parmesan

We tried a classic dish of Italian cuisine, Eggplant Parmesan from Supercook.

Aubergines (eggplant) and Mozzarella cheese are baked in the oven in a sauce containing onions, garlic, canned tomatoes, tomato purée, basil, cayenne pepper, and seasoning.  Grated Parmesan is sprinkled over.  We served the dish with Ciabatta.

We often try and find a wine to match the cuisine but instead decided to pair this dish with a bottle of Tesco’s2014-08-13 18.36.05 Finest Pouilly Fumé 2008, a French white.

We detected gooseberries on the nose and tasted hints of grapefruit zest and a smoky honeyed creaminess. We thought this excellent wine was a good match with the meal.
