Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$C'est la Vie Chardonnay / Sauvignon

A good wine that is fresh and well balanced from a producer I love, Albert Bichot. A wine that offers citrus and tropical fruits aromas. Perfect to go along these crispy shrimps!

+- 30$Chronique, Le Trèfle Noir

The notes of butterscotch and grilled hazelnuts of the beer will evoke the taste of the grilled panko of the shrimps. In the meanwhile, notes of berries of the beer will be completed by the spicy cocktail sauce. A perfect match for the happy hour!

Blonde de Chambly by Unibroue

Crisp acidity of lemongrass followed by sweet honey and notes of pepper, with a sharp, floral finish. Suggested glass : Footed flute.
