mushroom risotto

mushroom risotto
A new Champagne House to the UK but one that over the years has become a firm favourite on the continent. The three brothers, from the Frerejean-Taittinger family, have embarked on a mission to revive some of the oldest traditions of Champagne and notably the sabrage. As the lot tear about London lopping off bottle caps, with the help of our Wine Director Tom Harrow, the Champagne has caused quite a stir.

Extra long maturation in their cellars for a minimum of 5 years on the lees, all premier cru vineyards, and all with a complexity to rival any 'branded' Champagne on the market.

What to drink with... mushroom risotto.

Mushrooms frequently make a wine taste better than it might otherwise appear, maybe something to do with the fungus’s umami – that savoury pleasant flavour.

Given the risotto is quite creamy, a Pinot Noir and its acidity will work well, whether New World or Old World. Whites are supposedly the colour for risottos so try an oaked Chardonnay, or our choice Chenin Blanc Reserve from the Western Cape. Or how about our fruity refreshing rosé from Italy: Castello di Ama Rosato – at a whacking 13% it’s a red in pink clothing.
