"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" LdV

Sunday, 31 January 2016



I always have Champagne in my cupboard and Crémant de Loire or d'Alsace in my fridge. I drink Champagne with nothing else. In France, we do not tend to make a Kir Royale with Champagne. When you have a perfect bottle of Champagne ( Ruinart or Crystal), why on earth would you ruined it with a syrupy fruit liqueur? Be careful though. I DO LIKE Kir Royal but I use a "Crémant" instead, very fruity and bubbly. To change from the syrupy fruit liqueur, I put one day a cinnamon stick and it was very subtle and tasty. You can find Crémant de Loire nearly anywhere now or try your wine merchant. If you really cannot find a Crémant go for any Prosecco then...
Enjoy with moderation of course...
