A medium bodied pinot blanc, with a subtle wood barrel aging, is the perfect choice. The slightly fruity aromas offer a nice contrast to the creamy sauce, and the texture of the wine complements the richness of the dish.
Trim green beans. Add half of the summer savory to a large saucepan of boiling, salted water. Blanch green beans for approx. 2 min. and transfer to a large bowl of water mixed with ice cubes. Take beans out of cold water after approx. 1 min. and set aside.
