Creole Shrimp Bisque

Soup is a hard match for wine—liquid on liquid. Sparklers fix the texture problem, with bubbles for contrast. Here, the red fruit in a rosé really pops with the sweet shrimp and tames the heat of the cayenne. And bubbly’s characteristic yeastiness echoes the slightly darkened roux thickening this bisque.

Pair with: J Brut Rosé (Russian River Valley; $38); Laetitia 2009 Brut Rosé (Arroyo Grande Valley; $30); Scharffenberger Brut Rosé “Excellence” (Mendocino County; $23).
