Découvrez les accords mets et vins parfaits pour Pâques

 

Easter is fast approaching, a time of joyous celebration and gathering around delicious meals. Whether you're preparing a traditional feast or looking to add a touch of originality to your menu, choosing the right food and wine pairings can turn your meal into a memorable experience for everyone at the table. In this article, we'll explore some suggestions for harmoniously pairing your Easter dishes with delicious wines, adding a touch of sophistication to your festive table.

 

Spring starters :


Start your meal with light and refreshing starters that celebrate the flavours of the season. Options such as grilled asparagus, a warm goat's cheese salad or mimosa eggs will go perfectly with a bright, aromatic white wine. Opt for a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris to complement these dishes with their fruity notes and refreshing acidity.


We recommend the following cuvées :

  • Kikori white - Clocher Vert

  • Entre-deux-mers - Château Grand Jean

 

Main Dish


The main course at Easter is often centred around lamb, a classic dish for this festival. Roast lamb with scalloped potatoes goes beautifully with medium-bodied, elegant red wines. A Merlot or a Pinot Noir will offer supple tannins and aromas of red fruit that will blend harmoniously with the tender meat of the lamb.


We recommend the following wines :

  • Bordeaux Rouge Veggie - Château Grand Jean

  • Bordeaux Supérieur GJ - Château Grand Jean

  • Saint Emilion Grand Cru - Château Malineau

  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape - Domaine La Boutinière

 

Desserts


End your meal on a sweet, chocolatey note with Easter Nest, a traditional chocolate-based recipe decorated with Easter eggs. A full-bodied red wine such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or Malbec is a good option for this dessert. Look for wines with supple tannins and ripe fruit notes to balance the richness of the chocolate.


We recommend the following cuvées :

  • Bordeaux Supérieur - Château Grand Jean

  • Crémant de Bordeaux Rosé - Château Grand Jean

  • Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux - Château Du Vallier

 

 

In conclusion, choosing the right food and wine pairings can turn your Easter meal into an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Whether you opt for traditional dishes or want to experiment with new flavours, there's a perfect wine for every dish. Feel free to explore different options and be creative in your choices to amaze your guests and create delicious memories during this joyous celebration. Happy Easter and bon appétit!
