The rich bouquet of this wine helps to capture the full sweetness of this classic French dessert. The ripe fruit aromas gently set off the citrus tones. Enjoy the wine between 11 – 13°C/54°F.
Preheat the oven to 175°C/345°F. Defrost puff pastry and cut 8 rings with the pastry cutter. Place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for approx. 8 – 7 min. until golden.
