Fri 9th April – Taste NORMANDY with us! (L’Atitude-at-Home Box orders by midday Thurs 8th April)
Back after our Easter break and it’s full steam ahead on our virtual tour. We’re Normandy bound this week and have something quite special for you…. Bubbles!
Not from grapes, but pears
Poiré GRANIT, made by famed biodynamic producer Eric Bordelet from 300 year-old pear trees, has such a delicate mousse and unparalleled complex flavours that it would be a stunning alternative to Champagne.
Delicate, crisp and refreshing, its luscious pears are offset by a rich Champagne-like breadiness. Utterly, utterly delicious!
Eric farms 15 acres of apple and pear orchards in Southern Normandy with 20 varieties of apple and 15 varieties of pear, some as old as 300 years. He is one of the world’s most respected cider and perry makers and we are really excited to share this absolute gem with you! We have had his delicious Poiré Authentique on sale in the shop for a while, but the GRANIT is on a different level!
One of our favourite things to do is to match bubbles with food as they are so versatile, and Normandy has a wonderful larder to choose from so this is going to be fun! We’ll choose a selection we think will really bring out the flavours in this exceptional Poiré for this week’s box (although, we’d happily drink it on its own )
€50 for 2 people. Orders to email@example.com by midday Thurs. Collection Fri 9th April from 5-6.30
