Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Domaine du Tariquet Chardonnay

A Chardonnay from south-west fRance, with ripe apples and butter accents and a smooth texture. Perfect with this comforting soup!

+- 30$ Umani Ronchi Casal di Serra Vecchie Vigne 2013

An intriguing wine from the Marches region in Italy. On a pear and honey register along a smooth texture. Another proof that it's always worth discovering less popular Italian region !

Apaisante, Lagabière

This Belgian white beer flavored with chamomile will offer you a fruity pairing. Its notes of lemon, pear, coriander and vanilla will emphasize the delicacy of the white part of leek in this comforting soup.
