How to serve Poiré Domfront ?
Which type of glass?
A flute, with its elegant silhouette, is ideal to use for an aperitif with friends, as well as for big celebrations. The martini-style “coupe” is not ideally suited to sparkling drinks as its wide shape allows the aromas to dissipate. A tulip-shaped wine glass is a better choice as it concentrates the nuances of the aroma.
At what temperature should Poiré Domfront be served?
At around 10°C, Poiré Domfront is at its best:
colder and it will shrink the tastebuds and hide the delicate aroma,
warmer and it loses some of its distinctive character, its vitality and freshness.
Using Poiré Domfront as an ingredient, a sacrilege?
It’s a surprising plus! It can partner fish stock, sauces and gravies, and is also at home with creamy bases or shallots. To end a meal with a light finish, why not use it to poach fresh fruit?
