As a drink or after dinner, a white wine flavoured with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, mace, nutmeg, honey, rose water and orange.
A medieval recipe revisited by Patrick Rouvière, de L'Espaviote : the Hypocras des pays d'Oc, the Southern part of France, is ideal to stimulate appetite and as a dessert wine. A refreshing white wine with a lot of spicy flavours : cinnamon, cardamom and notes of orange.
Serving : Serve chilled as an aperitif or as a dessert wine with apple and pear pies. Delicious with vanilla ice cream and lemon sorbet.
Recipe idea : use instead of white wine to prepare mussels with a touch of saffron.
