A Sancerre is a Good Match with Shrimps Provençal-Style

Supercook consider their Shrimps Provençal-Style recipe as one of the best ways to cook shrimps. The shrimps are cooked with garlic, green and red peppers, mushrooms, canned tomatoes, white wine, thyme, bay leaf and oregano.  The dish is served with marjoram-flavoured buttered rice.

Supercook recommend pairing the shrimps with a bottle of Pouilly-Fumé.  However, we chose a white from the opposite bank of the Loire, a Sancerre, Fournier Père et Fils, 2008 from Tesco’s Finest Range.

This wine started out smooth and citrussy with minerality, complexity and a crisp grapefruit finish.  IMG_0355.JPG (2)It was a good match with the shrimps.
