Délice
Tasting Food and drink harmonies In details
Deep golden hues introduce a nose of crystallized citrus interlaced with succulent scents of warm brioche, caramel, lush pears and ginger bread. Fullness and impressive length on the palate, with cushiony effervescence showcasing dense body.
Smooth enough to flatter the texture of foie gras, whether served “au naturel” or lightly seared, also playing well with variations on a sweet-and-savoury theme - pigeon pastilla, duck with honey and a whole host of other exotic flavours. At the close of the meal, Délice will perform impeccably with such traditional delicacies as batter pudding, caramelized upside-down apple tart, sweet soufflés or a traditional wedding cake.
