Mets & Vins - Que boire pour accompagner les petits plats de maman ? - Les Grappes

What to drink to go with mommy's meals?

Because they are the ones who get up to soothe our nightmares, who comfort us after our first heartache and who understand in one glance our different moments of life.On Mother's Day, we plunge into our olfactory past and reconnect with the sweet smells that cradled our childhood. So, which wine to accompany mom's little dishes?

For Mother's Day, what wine with stuffed mussels?

The stuffed mussels, a mother's dish between land and sea, which brings us to Roussillon, in the small steep streets of the delicious village of Collioure. Domaine Madeloc's Trémadoc cuvée, a white wine of character to sublimate this contrasting agreement.

A greedy nose of buttered, fruity (greengage, yellow lemon), smoky and spicy (cumin) fragrances. An ample and concentrated palate, punctuated by liveliness and controlled bitterness.

What wine with a beef bourguignon?

It simmered for hours in a pretty cast-iron casserole dish to gradually distil its notes of red wine and bouquet garni. Beef bourguignon, a sweet dish from maman, which deserves a structured and fine vintage.

Domaine LePlan-Vermeersch offers us here a beautiful expression of Grenache Noir, matured to perfection. An intense nose of kirsch, prune of Agen, with an animal note. A mouth which combines a beautiful substance and melted tannins. Then, which stretches in length to leave us a pleasant sensation of jammy black berries.

What wine with Mother's Day dessert?

A Château Soucherie, Coteaux du Layon, 1 st cru Chaume, or nothing!

As soon as it appears in our glass, its golden robe with copper reflections awakens the appetite. Its nose opens gradually on elegant aromas of lemon blossom, fresh almond and candied apricot. Its mouth is just perfect, with a mellow attack, then a fresh and salty finish.

To be enjoyed just chilled (10-12°C), with a prune far or a tarte Tatin.

It's high time to give a kiss to all mothers!
