Poires Au Vin and Wine
While the Jura's sweet Macvin is often served as a pre-meal "apéritif", it also makes for a great match for this very fruity wine-based dessert. The cooked orange and cinnamon flavors of the poached pear are reflected by the wine's own savory gingerbread spice aromas. A red Macvin served very chilled is ideal. For a lighter, more refreshing finish to a meal, a dry red with bright berry aromas will also make a fine match, such as a Pinot Noir for example.
