Wine Pairing of the Week: Salmon Tartare & Loire’s Chéreau-Carré Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie
From the vineyards in the golden triangle of Muscadet, on the outskirts of Nantes, comes this deliciously fruity and refreshing white. Vinified from Melon de Bourgogne grapes, it delivers aromas and flavours of granny smith apples, lemon drops and lime zest with pronounced minerality. Dry, with crisp acidity and smooth finish. Perfect aperitif wine! Great match with salmon tartar and grilled fish in creamy sauces.
Salmon Tartare is a fresh raw salmon combined with mayonnaise, chives, capers, mustard, lime juice and Tabasco sauce and is usually spread on a cracker and enjoyed as an appetizer or with fresh salads. Ripe avocado, mangoes and watercress in this recipe add freshness and a splash of colour to this delicious and healthy appetizer.
