Tsarine Orium on the Menu for Mothers’ Day: The Art of extra-brut
Reims, May 2022
What elegant wine should you choose to delight a mother who appreciates a delicate, precise champagne?
Tsarine Orium is an extra-brut champagne developed by Isabelle Tellier, Chef de Cave, who created this cuvée. Isabelle says she was seeking purity in all its dimensions: “Purity of taste, with a perfect balance between Chardonnay, Meunier and Pinot Noir. And purity also means naturalness! Orium is an extra-brut, a champagne with a very low sugar dosage of only 3 g/l.”

Isabelle Tellier, who created this champagne, suggests a simple but delicious menu to accompany Tsarine Orium throughout the meal.
“— This is the perfect occasion for cuisine that is easy, family-oriented, and consensual. For the starter, the inspiration is Italian for a change. A bruschetta awakens the taste buds, and it can also be served with the apéritif before sitting down to the meal.
For the main course I've gone back to a family-dinner classic: roast chicken. Everyone loves it and the childhood memories it brings back. For dessert, a mango Tarte Tatin is a way to hark back to another classic of French cuisine. The acidic quality of the mango provides an interesting harmony with the yellow-fruit notes in Tsarine Orium.”
