Champagne Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Brut, Champagne, France
Here, from Maison Taittinger , a great product, you may have seen it in our recipe for Quebec Crab and Sea Urchin Salad by Grégory Faye. This champagne is perfect. Refined, lively, a perfect balance.

Côte des Roses, Gérard Bertrand, Languedoc, France
Dry and fresh, this Languedoc rosé will make you experience other emotions. Without forgetting its bottle, in a rose shape, which is a gift in itself.

Charles & Charles Rosé, Washington, United States
Not the easy-to-use American fruity rosé that we loved in the 90s. The latter, even if there are some notes of fruit, will be rather fresh in the mouth. From the beautiful Washington State in the North of the United States of America.
