What better way to wish each other a happy New Year 2020 than to get together for a lovely aperitif with family and friends?
Cheese puff pastry, Madagascar black pepper and walnuts will brilliantly accompany the white wine of Vacqueyras.
With its beautiful light-yellow colour with small brilliant green reflections… Balance, a beautiful freshness in the mouth, with notes of lemon and acidity… Notes of white flowers that are easily recognisable on the nose and palate… It’s best served chilled between 10° and 12°C.
A successful marriage of food and wine makes an unforgettable moment. An accomplished “food and wine” pairing means, above all, knowing how to surprise, always respecting the good things in life.
All you have to do is go to your local wine shop to buy a white Vacqueyras.
