+- 20$ Argyros Atlantis 2017

Perfumes of lemon and citrus, subtle floral and mineral notes ... This Greek wine will not leave its place while offering a beautiful balance to support these amazing mussels.

La Session IPA de Lesseps, Pit Caribou, 4%

Low alcoholic, this New England IPA offers a cascade of exotic fruits and citrus that will bring out the aromas of the marinade. Its low bitterness and lack of residual sugar will allow the delicacy of the mussels to express themselves.
