This stunning plum-studded sabayon—an airy custard sweetened with clover honey and Moscato—is summer's answer to crème brûlée. If you don't have Moscato on hand, any honey-inflected dessert wine will do, such as Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise or a late-harvest Riesling. More Fruit Desserts
The difference between Moscato d'Asti and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise—both of which are light, golden dessert wines that will pair beautifully with these fluffy gratins—is one of style: They're both made from Muscat grapes, though the Italian Moscato d'Asti is lightly sparkling while the Beaumes-de-Venise is still and higher in alcohol. Both have lovely floral aromas and flavors that recall honey and peaches.
