TASTING NOTE : The colour of Paradis Saint-Pierre is bright and clean. We can smell honey flavours on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is very round, mineral and fresh. After a while, we can also smell toasted almonds and hazelnuts flavours.
WINE PAIRING: If you like dishes with sauce, the complexity and the minerality of the Paradis Saint-Pierre will perfectly match with a creamed chicken with mushrooms.
The Chef and his sommelier from the restaurant Apicius in Paris invite you to paradise with “a saint Pierre roasted on the skin accompanied by pasta in anchovy rissotto”.
