Sushi Day: what wine to drink with sushi?
June 18 is a special date for Japanese food lovers, because it's Sushi Day! This holiday is the perfect opportunity to explore the delights of sushi and, why not, pair it with a fine wine; because, after all, there's only one great occasion to open a bottle!

What should you drink with sushi?

Nigiri with salmon and Riesling 

Salmon, with its fatty texture and rich flavor, pairs wonderfully with a dry Riesling. This white wine, often with notes of citrus and flowers, brings a freshness that balances the fatness of the fish. Choose an Alsace or German Riesling for a perfect match. 

Our Rieslings

Tuna and Chardonnay sashimi 

Pure, flavorful tuna sashimi finds an ideal companion in an unoaked Chardonnay. The minerality and freshness of chardonnay underscore the delicacy of the tuna without overpowering its subtle flavors. A Burgundy chardonnay would be an excellent choice. 

Our Chardonnays

What should you drink with maki?

California Roll and Provence rosé 

The California Roll, with its blend of avocado, crab and cucumber, is a sushi with soft, creamy flavors. A light, fruity rosé from Provence, with notes of strawberries and flowers, adds a touch of freshness that complements it perfectly. 

What should you drink with spicy sushi?

Spicy Tuna Roll and Pinot Noir 

Spicy Tuna Roll, with its hint of spiciness, calls for a light, fruity red wine like Pinot Noir. The cherry and raspberry aromas of this red wine balance the spices and enhance the spicy tuna. Choose a Pinot Noir from Burgundy or California for perfect harmony. 

Our Pinots Noirs

What should you drink with tempura?

Shrimp tempura and brut Champagne 

Crisp, light tempura shrimp are a perfect match for brut champagne. The fine bubbles and freshness of the champagne cut through the fried shrimp, offering a refreshing, sparkling mouthfeel. A Crémant de Loire may also do the trick if you're looking for an alternative to champagne.
