Mushroom Gravy – pair this recipe with L’Ormarins Brut MCC

This MCC is an utter delight with food. Fresh and lively with hints of brioche and apple make it a dream for a festive meal. The rich mushroom gravy is complemented by the ripe fruit and fresh lime character in this wine. This wine is incredibly vibrant and well balanced which makes it a perfect match for the intensely savoury mushroom gravy. The richness and creaminess of the gravy play beautifully with the creamy ribbon of acidity running through this wine.
