THE OPTIMAL WINE PAIRING

Originating from the northern flank of Mount Etna, this wine is made from 80 year old vines. With a bright light pink color, the nose develops notes of citrus and raspberries. The volcanic soil of Etna brings a lot of personality and intensity to this rosé. Mineral, powerful, peppery, it is endowed with a great freshness which will have all the capacity to balance the Chimichurri while emphasizing the Daurade.

FRANÇOIS JAGUT

This Breton in his early forties, raised in the “south” of the Gulf of Morbihan and fed on his grandmother’s good pure butter cakes, has a journey that is as well marked as his cuisine. After graduating from the hotel school in Saint Nazaire, he joined Marc Veyrat’s kitchens for a few months before settling in the well known “La Chaîne d’Or” in Normandy for almost two years. This was followed by several long and beautiful experiences in renowned establishments in Lorient and Cancale before finally landing in Mondorf-les-Bains to join Peter Körner at the Roses’ kitchen in 2005!

Attached to his origins, he grants a great interest to the less noble fishes like the mackerel or the sardine in order to give them some letters of nobility through cookings not always conventional but controlled. He also likes to mix the origins with particular peppers while preserving the seasonality of the products served; when there is none, there is none! His key word is “evolution”, no question of resting on his laurels, even if it means surrounding himself with excellent pastry chefs, for example, whom he accompanies in a process of de-sweetening of the sweets, but all in a gentle way.
