Truffes en Croute
At Champagne Louise Brison, a lot of thought and effort goes into the planning of the Sunday lunch with the family. This is becomes even more indulgent during the Truffle season, which happens to correspond with the December holidays, and New Year’s Eve!
The soils at the estate are reminiscent of those of Chablis. Not only do grapes, destined for Champagne, excel in the Kimmeridgian calcaire-soil – so do truffles! The estate has planted hazelnut trees and truffle oaks to harvest black truffles between the end of November and the beginning of January.
And what Champagne connoisseur doesn’t enjoy Truffles? This is a delicious and festive dish with black truffles. This recipe, full of flavour, is the ultimate indulgence – a great pleasure to taste and share with loved ones. Perfect with Louise Brison’s 1998 Légende vintage Champagne.
We hope you enjoy!
