Our wine stewards suggest


Creamy sauce, chicken, mushroom = a good Viognier! It is organic, comes from California and the palate is velvety. The nose is reminiscent of honey with subtle floral notes, undergrowth, peach and vanilla on the finish. Match more than perfect for these comforting vol-au-vent!


Seasoned with an addition of dunes pepper, the Arrakis will offer you notes of lemon, orange and spice. Its lemony notes will complement the creamy sauce to bring a light freshness touch. The season yeast and pepper dunes will spice up the dish by offering sweet notes of black pepper and pine resin that will mingle with the vegetal and earthy notes of the mushrooms. With its fairly thin body, this beer will slice in the cream of the dish for an agreement in lightness.
