As a main course we had monk fish on a bed of white bean ragout with hearts of palm and truffled mushroom stock. It was positively delicious. We paired it with a Clos du Papillon Savennieres 1998. Papillon means "butterfly" in French and has a butterfly on the label. Savennieres is made from the Chenin Blanc grape like the ever opular Vouvray, but tends to be drier with more body. Our particular one comes from a single vineyard.
For dessert we served Muscat de Saint Jean d Minervois. We accompanied it with bananas Foster creme brulee, a combination of two desserts into one. It was wonderful! Unlike the other wines the Muscat is not from the Loire valley though it is from the Languedoc region which is also in southern France. It was quite delicious.
