Domaine La Rouillère Blanc, AOC Côtes de Provence (2019)

Blend of 2 grapes Sémillon brings aromatic intensity, body, roundness and a beautiful elegance with nuances of white flowers and honey Rolle imparts citrus and pear fragrances, body and balance. Rolle is the French Vermentino grape. Overall is a fresh and aromatic wine which works very well with grilled fish or seafood and is equally good on its own as an aperitif.

12.5% alcohol 

Our trio tartare would be a great pair as well as the Plateau de Calamars et Crevettes.

Domaine La Rouillère Rouge, AOC Côtes de Provence (2019)

Blend of 3 grapes Syrah brings structure and red fruits aromas. Grenache brings body, amplitude and power. Cabernet Sauvignon brings powerful but ripe, smooth tannins. With aromas of red fruits and spices this wine works well with cold cuts, grilled white meats or Provencal vegetables in olive oil. 

12.5% alcohol

From our menu, we would pair this wine with the Tarte de Tomates et Chevre, the Lentil Salad or Calamars Frites for starters. For main course, we recommend it with our Seabream and Seabass, one of our chicken dishes or the Magret de Canard.

Antoine Moueix, Le Grand Chapelain, Bordeaux (2017)

Bordeaux produces many of the most highly sought after and expensive wines in the world. Yet, it also makes more wine than any other region in France. Therefore there is plenty of wine for every budget in this region. One of the reasons that these wines are famous is because they have a strong structure which helps them age for decades and evolved interesting aromas and flavors without losing their freshness. This comes down to the grape varieties permitted in the blend. The two most important of these are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which have a lot of flavor, plus the natural preservatives’ acid and tannin. While both grapes product powerful wines, Merlot is the softer and fruitier of the two, contributing juicy plum and mint characters to the wine. Cabernet Sauvignon has strong drying tannin and more savory notes of black current and tobacco. It is also common to age these wines in oak. This helps smooth them out so they don’t feel too abrasive on the palette, and it also add aromas of smoke, clove and cinnamon. 13% alcohol.

We recommend this wine with our Couqley Steak Frites, Rib eye or Cote De Boeuf.
