Blend: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris
Taste: The bouquet of this exquisite blend is both alluring and complex. Fresh, zesty citrus notes of lemon, lime, and grapefruit mingle with a touch of green apple, creating an invigorating aroma. Floral undertones of jasmine and elderflower add an enticing layer, while subtle hints of wet stone and saline mineralogy reflect the influence of the Atlantic coast. On the palate, the Armorica White Blend is crisp and refreshing, with lively acidity that brings out the bright flavors of the wine. The Sauvignon Blanc lends tangy citrus and green apple notes, while the Chardonnay contributes a rounded texture and hints of stone fruit. The Pinot Gris adds a delicate touch of pear and white peach, creating a harmonious balance. The wine's finish is long and clean, with a lingering aftertaste of saline minerality and a hint of fresh-cut herbs.
Pairing: The Armorica White Blend's vibrant acidity and saline qualities make it an ideal partner for a wide range of dishes. The wine's crispness complements light seafood dishes, such as grilled shrimp or ceviche, while its mineral notes pair well with fresh oysters and clams. The wine's citrus and floral nuances also work wonderfully with delicate white fish, poached chicken, and green salads tossed with a citrus vinaigrette.
For a true Armorican experience, pair the 2020 Armorica White Blend with regional specialties from Brittany. Enjoy it alongside a steaming bowl of Breton fish soup or a plate of fresh, tender scallops cooked in a beurre blanc sauce. The wine's acidity and minerality also make it an excellent companion for the region's famed buckwheat galettes (check out the recipe below), filled with a variety of savory ingredients such as ham, cheese, and mushrooms.
The Armorica White Blend is versatile enough to partner with various vegetarian dishes, showcasing its refreshing qualities. Pair it with a summer vegetable ratatouille, a simple green salad with goat cheese and walnuts, or a delicate asparagus risotto. For a more substantial option, consider a creamy spinach and artichoke tart or a hearty mushroom stroganoff with a dollop of crème fraîche. The wine's lively acidity and subtle complexity will elevate the flavors of these dishes while maintaining a balanced and harmonious pairing.
