+- 20$Freixenet Elyssia

A solid sparkling wine from Spain. Chardonnay, Macabeo, Parellada, Pinot Noir ... Hints of white flowers, gunflint and white fruits. A super fresh wine that will be a delight with this weekend meal !


It’s easy to support the delicacy of the lobster with a Gose, an acidulous and salty wheat beer with notes of citrus that will cut into the fat of the butter, which we like to brush to excess on our crustacean!
