Tsarine Orium, Extra-brut for Easter 2021



Reims, March 2021

An Easter Dinner with Tsarine Orium – Menu by Isabelle Tellier

Isabelle Tellier, creator of Tsarine's Orium cuvée, is a Chef de Cave who knows and loves food and food-wine pairings.

For the Easter holidays, Isabelle has concocted a menu that is all finesse and lightness to accompany this extra-brut champagne (dosage 3 gr/l) with its lacy, delicate bubbles. Isabelle designed the menu to divinely set off Orium's nose, with its subtle mixture of white flowers and notes of yellow fruits. The dishes she has chosen are delicate to allow Orium's ample, silken palate to fully express itself and enhance its bracing mineral finish.

For Orium I was determined to attain balance in all its purity, maintaining the typical qualities of each grape variety and reducing the sugar dosage to achieve an extra brut…”
