Bouchées a la Reine

                                                                     Bouchées a la Reine

Bouchées a la Reine have always been associated with refinement and elegance, served on special occasions. Let’s not forget the wines to carry the accompaniment to the special occasion. A white wine such as Burgundy blanc: Montagny, Hautes-cotes-de-nuits. Pouligny Montrachet or a Vin Jaune from the Jura Region. If the seafood takes over in the Bouchée a la Reine then a swing to Alsace with a Riesling might be the answer.

The main ingredient of Bouchées a la Reine is actually the “Pâte feuilletée.” Best to be purchased from your bakery or specialty store. Pair with: Beaune du Chȃteau Blanc
