Crème brûlée

Jukes Wine And Food Puddings Creme Brulee

As I only like the crunchy, caramelised bit on top, as opposed to the silky, creamy bit, I have asked some pals which wine is the best match. The consensus is that you need to aim somewhere between my almond tart and cheesecake wines. As Loire sweeties, made from Chenin Blanc, appear in both sections, they must be spot on – Coteaux du Layon (and that extended family), Vouvray Moelleux, Bonnezeaux (pronounced ‘Bonzo’) and Quarts de Chaume are your choices. You could always look for some South African Chenin Blanc sweet wines, as the grape is widely planted down there, and they are stunning value for money.
