The Saumur Rose is one of the few styles we didn’t try during our recent trip. Sure that’ll be lovely in the garden later!
We have some wine loving friends visiting so had a whip round and have pushed the boat out a bit. We have a 3 course meal (and aperitif) planned to go with these:
Firing up the Big Green Egg again to smoke some salmon which will go with cream cheese, dill and pea shoots. Mains will be sous-vide duck finished on the egg (seared tuna for one pescaterian) with crunchy salad, asian dressing and noodles, all finished with sesame oil just off its smoking point. Blatant cheat of shop bought chocolate fondants for dessert
I’ve written a slightly nerdy wine quiz so each bottle will be presented blind and more revealed about it as the evening progresses
I’m a little concerned that the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are on the young side (especially the Chardonnay) so both will be decanted well ahead of serving
Looking forward to this!!
