Here is a dish simple in its preparation but rich in sensation that combines the firmness and dryness of the flesh of trout with the softness and sweetness of lasagna and cream. The acidity of the tomato, the vegetal notes of it and the spinach, the milky character of the Emmenthal, the smokiness of the fish bring contrast and complexity. Such dishes allow many pairings according to one's tastes and the style one seeks to enhance. A rosé from Provence will be discreet while highlighting the whole dish, but we can choose a white Burgundy from the Côtes de Beaune, such as a Saint Romain or a Saint Aubin, for its buttery notes and its roundness in order to accentuate these characters. On the contrary, with a Pouillly-Fumé, which by its mineral notes and its acidity will avoid a possible heaviness of the dish, we will bring freshness while reinforcing the smoked and vegetal notes of the dish. For fans of red wine, we can try a supple Bordeaux cuvée for its discreetly milky and vegetal notes.
