Finally, add the cold reduced wine in the infused cream, pour the mixture into a jar of package and freeze (leaving the walnut leaves in the cream).

In a bowl, mix the flour and butter well with your fingertips, until you obtain a sandy paste.  In a bowl, whisk the egg and sugar. Mix the two preparations to form a ball, without too much kneading. Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Unpack the dough and lower it on the floured worktop to a thickness of 3 mm. Smear a pie pan 24 cm in diameter with the dough and reserve in the refrigerator.

When the preparation is smooth, add the cream and spread on the bottom of the cold pie to a thickness of 1 cm. Refrigerate time to preheat oven to 160 ° C (5-6). Bake pie for 30 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
