Pair with

White Wine - Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie - Château du Coing de St Fiacre

A creamy dish with citrus notes that will be a perfect match for the grapefruit notes, the power and the richness of this wine from Vignobles Günther-Chereau in Loire Valley. 

"The estate’s distinctively sloping terrain offers a stunning view across the entire vineyard and as far as the village of Saint Fiacre. Encircled by the Muscadet region’s two riversthe Sèvre and the Maine, our wines enjoy a microclimate that gives them great minerality and freshness."
