A Californian Chardonnay is Very Good with Tarte au Poulet

We had some cooked chicken to use up, which gave us the opportunity to try Tarte au Poulet, a recipe from Supercook.

Tarte au Poulet is a pastry flan filled with cooked chicken meat, mushrooms, chopped lean ham, seasoning, cayenne pepper, cream and Gruyère cheese.2015-02-18 18.32.43

We served this very tasty dish with a green salad.

We paired the meal with a bottle of Peltier Ranch Lodi Chardonnay 2012, a Californian white from the Wine Society.2015-02-18 18.37.48

We loved the creamy vanilla butteriness with tropical fruits, especially pineapple.  The oakiness had an affinity with the spiciness from the cayenne.  A very good match and even better than a previous pairing with Pork Stroganoff.
