AN IRISH FONDUE
We are bringing a little of the French Jura mountains to Ireland for this supper with a fondue made with Glebe Brethan – an Irish Gruyere-style made by David Tiernan with milk from his Montbéliarde cows; the breed originates in the mountainous Jura region of eastern France and their nutrient-rich milk is excellent for making cheese. (Montbéliarde milk is used to produce the region’s celebrated Comté cheese.)
We will be pairing the Glebe Brethan with Coolea & Durrus, finished with a dash of Irish Whiskey.
Served with steamed potatoes & Broccoli, pickles & charcuterie.
White Wine Pairing: Chateau Le Roc, Vin de Pays D'Oc, Fronton Côtes du Frontonnais, SW France, 50% Colombard 50% Ugni Blanc.
The grape varieties give a really intense aroma of grapefruit, orange & exotic fruits while the taste is fresh with an aromatic long finish.
Red Wine Pairing: Mondeuse, Rene Quenard, Savoie, 100% Mondeuse.
There are concentrated fruit flavours with notes of blackberries & spices. A good wine to serve with earthy rich cheeses.
To Finish: Irish Whiskey Truffles
Le Piantagioni Coffee & Herb Tea
