Served with tropical fruit, citrus and ice, these Champagnes forge a new path. With their natural fruit aromas and delicate sweet touch, they bring a refreshing twist to the Champagne experience.
When Graphic Ice meets pepper, the two worlds collide and the latter smacks a spicy punch and adds a touch of frivolity. Escape from it all with these unusual pairings to scintillate the palate and a selection of spicy partnerships created by the Chief Winemaker Guillaume Roffiaen. Dinner is served!
Graphic Ice Champagnes love to be daring and spicy and shake things up a little. Pepper errs on the side of daring too and if chosen well, in just the right measure, imparts these Champagnes with a subtle edge to tantalise the taste buds. Here’s a whistle-stop tour in three simple lessons with a wild pepper from the foothills of the Himalayas. Cumeo pepper from Nepal is known for its intensely smooth flavour, and offers delicate smoky notes of lemon and lemongrass. A pepper with refined, bitter flavours to marry for example with barbecued prawn skewers with lemon and thyme, or even stir-fried chicken with chopped coriander to intensify the freshness. Potatoes and veggies also provide the perfect foil – try potato and herb “papillote” with marinated veal cutlets.
Serve these dishes with a glass of Graphic Ice Silver, enhanced with a slice of lime or fresh pineapple and a few ice cubes. Food pairings to take your breath away.
