Sommelier’s tip

 An aged Chablis Premier Cru Vosgros 

This desert requires a rich, gourmet wine to accompany it. An aged Chablis Premier Cru Vosgros that has lost the bite of its youth but which is still flourishing will bring out the delicious flavors in this dish, while respecting the taste of the melon, mint, and granita.

METHOD

Melon and mint Chablis granita and Chablis Premier Cru Vosgros

For the marinated melon:
Cut the melon into pieces. In a pan, bring the remaining ingredients to a boil and pour over the melon.

For the Chablis granita :
Bring the water and sugar to a boil with the wine. When it starts to bubble, turn off the heat and add the lime juice and lemon zest. Leave to cool and then put in the freezer. Stir the preparation with a fork every hour until it has the texture of a granita.

For the mint espuma :
Bring the water, sugar, lime and lemon juice to a boil with the glucose. Remove from the heat when the first bubbles appear. Leave to cool. Blend with the mint leaves, and then pour into a syphon and add a gas cartridge.


Assembly :
Place some pieces of melon in a dish and top with some Chablis granita. Place some mint espuma to one side of the dish and decorate with a few mint leaves.
