L’Ormarins MCC & Nougat pairing at Anthonij Rupert


Activity Description

This delicious offering to emerge from the Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room is guaranteed to get your taste buds tickling with delight, as the L’Ormarins MCC and nougat pairing takes bubbly enjoyment to the next level.

Breaking with tradition the estate’s three L’Ormarins Méthode Cap Classiques (MCC) have each been paired with handcrafted artisanal nougat, which perfectly complement the wines as well as showcasing their versatility as a partner to food. Traditionally MCC has been enjoyed as an apéritif with oysters, caviar and strawberries, but through this pairing your world is opened to so many more possibilities to enjoy this superb wine. Each nougat has been designed to bring out a certain characteristic found in its MCC partner.

L’Ormarins Brut NV has been paired with a delicious morsel of Cassata nougat, which is fashioned on the traditional Italian-inspired dessert. The candied fruit, vanilla and almond perfectly partner the fruity and toasty notes of the Brut. The beautiful blush pink Brut Rosé has been paired with a cherry, cranberry and rose nougat, which amplifies similar flavors in the Rosé. Completing the trio is the stately Blanc de Blancs and it’s a match made in heaven with the toasted pecan, orange and fleur de sel (salt) nougat. No longer will you only associate MCC with savoury and the odd sweet pairing as you discover its endless pairing possibilities.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience. Gorgeous setting at the manor house, fantastic MCC and nougat which were perfectly paired and excellently priced. The young man who helped us (a new employee who had just finished his wine makers course) was superb. Very knowledgeable and charming and an asset to your establishment. Well done to the whole team. We look forward to returning and would like to visit the wine cellar venue next time (building looked beautiful with some lovely art and sculptures on the drive past)! - Lindsey Jacobs
