Bonjour mon ami,
Planning an Easter brunch? Wanting to do something special and innovative? Perhaps impress your friends with your Champagne savoir faire?
If you haven’t discovered them already, may I introduce you to blanc de noirs? Blanc de noirs are made from 100% pinot noir grapes. So just like the wine, they are rich, smoky, spicy and pair beautifully with savory dishes like eggs, smoked salmon, etc…
May I suggest a boutique Champagne from my Reserve? Fleury “Carte Rouge” will impress in every way.
My boutique Champagnes are all “grower producers “ (a trade term meaning the Champagne is produced on a private estate, by the same family who grows the grapes). For more on the terroir, artistry, and legacies of these families please visit “The Houses”.
