A RECIPE TO BE PAIRED WITH Ruinart Blanc de Blancs cuvée

Valérie Radou explains:
"I chose to prepare roasted langoustines to pair with the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs cuvée. This cuvée is characterized by its aromatic freshness, especially with its acidulous and fruity notes, and its luminous color, with greenish reflections. This will echo the langoustines.
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."
