+- 30$DOMAINE THYMIOPOULOS TERRE ET CIEL 2012

This Greek wine made from a local variety named xinomavro has some barolo resemblance. On a dried flowers, ripe fruits and truffle register.

SAISON RUSTIQUE, DUNHAM, 6%

This Saison beer will seduce you with notes of spices, cereals and lemon. The clove flavour will melt pleasantly with the farmers' aromas of the lamb. The light acidity of the beer is will remind you of goat cheese. Very dry, it will bring a nice touch of freshness to this dish.
