Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Paul Mas Cabernet de Cabernet Origines

A cabernet blend that is pretty smooth, on the fruits and spices, providing subtle vegetal notes that will make this meal shine.

+- 30$ Domaine des Baumard Anjou Logis de la Giraudière 2011

Ahhhh the cabernet franc. Capricious variety that can be amazing or terrible! Here is one from the Loire region, with wet soil, red fruits and grilled peppers aromas.

Brown Ale, Microbrasserie de l’Île d’Orléans

Roasted hazelnuts, roasted nuts and toast are all present in this beer that will be paired well with chorizo, gratin cheese and meat lightly grilled. This dry and thin beer will help emphasize the sweet taste of the grilled zucchini.
