Isabelle Tellier’s gourmet menu for Mothers’ Day
Mothers' Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate with a champagne dinner. It’s quite simple, really. One wine can accompany all the courses, from starter to dessert… provided you select the right foods with just the right gustatory qualities.
And that is exactly what Isabelle Tellier, Chef de Cave of Chanoine Frères and food lover, loves to do. Being the creator of Réserve Privée and a cordon bleu chef, Isabelle is the perfect person to find the best food-wine pairings and put together a celebratory meal around one and the same champagne. Here are her suggestions for accompanying Réserve Privée Brut.
“—To accompany this full-bodied champagne, I’ve composed a seasonal menu that is both light and delicious. And most of all it’s easy to prepare, so you can cut down your time in the kitchen and enjoy the family reunion after all the time we’ve spent in lockdown.”
Salmon tartare with avocado, grapefruit, and pomegranate
Sautéed poultry, green asparagus and "grenaille" new potatoes
Apple pie with hazelnut butter
Whether for a noonday luncheon or an evening dinner, having one fine champagne throughout the meal is a pleasure any mother will love. So don your aprons! The ideal serving temperature for Réserve Privée Brut is between 8 and 10°C.
Chanoine Frères Réserve Privée Brut – a champagne with character
Chanoine Frères Réserve Privée Brut is a wine of character with a rich, structured palate and notes of fruit. Its blend brings out the typical qualities of the Champagne grape varieties. Pinot Noir dominates (70%), followed by Meunier (22%) and Chardonnay (8%). Champagne lovers appreciate its temperament, firmly rooted in the terroir.
With its fine bubbles and luminous gold color, on the palate the wine is a perfect balance between liveliness and roundness, underscored by flavors of fig and raisin.
