When dining at various restaurants across New York City this summer for French Restaurant Week® you will want to pair your meals with the perfect beverage. Luckily, some participating restaurants will feature La Demoiselle champagne 187 mL bottles for the special price of $17.89. La Demoiselle is the perfect refreshment in the summer heat and a flawless choice to pair with a delightful French meal. This 187 mL bottle is the perfect amount as an aperitif or with your lunch or dinner.
The Demoiselle Tête de Cuvée Brut Champagne is composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir and goes through primary fermentation in 100% stainless steel. The Champagne is quite golden in color, with a touch of green from the high Chardonnay content and has a decadent, generous nose that the Pinot dominates. Flavors of buttered toast, apples and even a bit of chanterelle mushroom unfold on the complex palate. This is very vinous, potent Champagne with quite a bit of length.
The best ways to enjoy La Demoiselle are listed below:
- As an aperitif on its own
- With fish: lobster, crab, salmon steamed or in sauce, raw oysters
- With meat: poultry mainly
- With Pasta: sea-food pasta, asparagus and shrimp risotto
- With Dessert: red-fruits tarts and cakes, as well as anything chocolate
Hope to see you at French Restaurant Week. Bon appetit!
