cellar petits grains

Made from the Muscat à Petits Grains grape, Les Petits Grains comes from the St. Jean de Minervois appellation of France, located near the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea between the Pyrennées Mountains and the Rhône River. The unique combination of limestone-rich soil, ample sunshine, and northerly winds contributes to the wine’s character, freshness and finesse.
Les Petits Grains’ nectar-like unctuousness, lively aromas, and clean finish make it an excellent wine to accompany desserts or cheeses or  to enjoy by itself. Best served chilled, it is full of the lush ripe flavors of apricot, mango, mandarin and honey, with an intensely gold color and a bouquet that reveals hints of peaches, orange zest and spice. Les Petits Grains is rich on the palate – but not in price. A bottle (375 ml) retails for an affordable $10.
 In New York, Chef Jean-Pierre Vuillermet, along with five other renowned Maîtres Cuisiniers de France chefs from the tri-state area: Chef Claude Godard of Madison Bistro;  Chef Jean-Louis Gerin of Restaurant Jean-Louis; Chef Jean-Michel Bergougnoux of L’Absinthe Brasserie; Chef Luc Pasquier of Jack’s Oyster House and Chef Jacques Sorei of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park, created his sumptuous "Gratin of Poached Pears with Spice, Saffron and Les Petits Grains Sabayon" at  a decadent Les Petits Grains “Luscious Desserts Only” promotion.
