Preparation time : 15 minutes
Resting time : overnight or a few hours
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 240g raspberries
- 1 bottle of Loupiac wine (75cl)
- 8-10 gelatine leaves
- Brown sugar (to decorate)
Open the Loupiac and pour into a bowl.
Place the gelatine leaves to soften on a baking tray and add around 2 tbsp of cold water. Once soft, melt the leaves in a pan over a gentle flame until completely dissolved.
Add the dissolved gelatine to the wine. Allow to set in a cool place.
When set, scrape a fork along the surface of the gelatine to make crystals. Place the raspberries in a shallow dish or round bowl and with dust with brown sugar.
Add the gelatine crystals over the raspberries and decorate with a sprig of mint.
Food and wine pairing
This really simple, fresh and flavour-packed dessert finds a natural ally in Chateau de Ricaud Loupiac, which is rich, flavoursome and delicately perfumed, and culminates in a refreshing, vibrant finish.
