I know some people who might fall off their chairs.
What? What? From Perrier in the Sauternes ? Do you want me dead or not?
And yet, why limit the consumption of Sauternes with foie gras (bof bof alliance if you want my personal opinion) or with dessert (I prefer red wine with chocolate).
In short, on my left there is So Sauternes So Sauternes, it’s a wine of Sauternes (ahaha) made from the first grapes harvested and those from the youngest vines of Chateau Bastor Lamontagne and 1er Cru Classé Rayne-Vigneau. It is then not put in barrels, the vinification being done exclusively in vats. Price: 18€ TTC per 750ml bottle.
On my right, there is Perrier who is no longer in the limelight.
For 1 glass :
If we put in a glass half So Sauternes, half Perrier and that we add a slice of lime, we have a fresh, refreshing and super perfumed cocktail, the So Perrier. You have the taste of Sauternes without the overpowering effect and the effervescence of Perrier that titillates your taste buds. Obviously this has nothing to do with a Sauternes Grand Cru but it’s something else, and something else I liked.
To be drunk as an aperitif, like last week at the wine bar, Rouge, from Sources de Caudalie. I’m telling you straight out, to try it is to adopt it.
I take the opportunity to share with you some pictures taken that day. This place is just a little paradise on earth.
And, icing on the cake, the incredible pool :
The Source of Caudalie – Chemin de Smith Haut Lafitte – 33650 Bordeaux-Martillac
Without forgetting its restaurant offer: La Grand Vigne (Gastro with the very talented Nicolas Masse – 2 Michelin macarons), La Table du lavoir (bistronomy), Rouge (wine bar) and the French Paradox bar (1200 precious bottles to taste).
For So Sauternesyou will find it in Monoprix but also in Paris, the Bordeauthèque of Lafayette Gourmet or in Gironde, the Sources de Caudalie.
They’re not the only ones.
