THE RUINART ROSÉ CUVÉE IN MAGNUM
Valérie Radou explains:
"I chose to prepare a spice-buttered turkey with assorted squash and cranberry sauce to pair with the Ruinart Rosé cuvée in Magnum. This cuvée is characterized by its spicy notes, which can be paired with seasonal products such as butternut squash or red kuri squash.
In order to create the best possible wine pairing, I consult with Maison Ruinart's oenological team. Through creative dialogue we create dishes which harmoniously pair with the Ruinart cuvées."
