  • About Gillardeau and Mouton Cadet

  • While the pioneering spirit is an indisputable link between Mouton Cadet and Gillardeau, the search for quality and consistency of products brings the two houses together where know-how prevails. These common points led to a meeting in 2010, which sounded obvious and created a new and most elegant alliance around the table and the launch of Mouton Cadet Blanc 2015.

  • This new vintage of Mouton Cadet expresses liveliness, freshness and an aromatic palette rich in fruit. These are all assets for a successful pairing, which sublimates the Gillardeau oysters, easily recognizable by their voluptuous flesh combining mineral and vegetal, with a slightly sweet finish. A harmony of flavors that combine from aperitif to dinner.

But before the festivities begin, the search for the meal that brings together family and friends is very often a puzzle. Mouton Cadet and Véronique Gillardeau have rethought the holiday must-have with this modern recipe, to be enjoyed with a Mouton Cadet Blanc 2015.
