from the chef

The melt-in-the-mouth consistency and the powerful, sophisticated aromas make this exceptional dish a real passport to a voyage of the senses. The guest of honor at this meal should be a Montrachet, the king of white wines. Power, grace and sophistication – all with seemingly endless, infinite aromas. This is no marriage. It’s a clash of the Titans!

The perfect
