For a better appreciation of our mussel recipes, we will gladly suggest, every week, a selection of wines which would be well advised to savor with mussels, mussels, and … even more mussels. Not to mention our unlimited Belgian style Fries.

Dijon Mussels

It is easy to crave for this Belgium dish, which becomes more and more popular. Again, the agreement of mussels and wine does not leave room for hesitation: we must turn to a white wine. Chardonnay and pinot blanc can be easily served with this sauce. Dominant aromas of green apple, honeydew melon and lemon, followed by a nice freshness will charm you with this dish!

À la Provençal Mussels

Dry white wines are often de rigueur to accompany the seafood iodine taste. We will not break the rule by recommending fresh whites with a little roundness and generous flavors to cope with the sauce and the aroma of the seafood marinade. Here you need a simple, fresh and mineral wines, with excitement for the sweetness of mussels. Dare even a little more with sparkling wines. To be discovered!

Marinara Mussels

“Marinara” means “in the style of the sailor”, this tomato sauce is a wonderful accompaniment for tender mussels in their shell. Although tomato dishes do not clash with a white wine, they often work better with wines that have a little more body and berries. Look for mineralized roses, such as those from France and northern Italy to also accompany these mussels!

Dijon Mussels

The mussel is known by man since probably the dawn of time as it is very common and widespread across the coast and so easily accessible. It was perhaps even used, at the time, as spoons since its shells were sometimes “preciously” kept. The Dijon mussels blend perfectly with dry white wine as it is rather “young” and lively (so not very sweet, with good acidity in the mouth).

À la Provençal Mussels

The mussels / white wine alliance is a treat for our taste buds! The Sauvignon Blanc grape variety is excellent for emphasizing the seafood iodine side with its fresh and lively side with green fruit or tropical fruit aromas. From France to California or New Zealand, etc. the list is long! Another summer option, fresh and pleasant may be to dare a rosé wine to make a change. This is one of the essential of the summer, and it’s good: the rosé goes very well with the dishes based on mussels.

Marinara Mussels

What could be better than a good Chianti to accompany Marinara mussels. Red wines of this symbolic Italian brand come from the Chianti region in Tuscany and consist for the greater part of the Sangiovese grapes. Recognized for their deep freshness, they will be best friends with the Marinara sauce which contains a good level of acidity. The red berries flavor, the flexible tannins and the fresh acidity will marry marvellously with the iodized taste of seafoods and the tomato flavor.

Suggestions of wines which we recommend to accompany our Marinara Mussels:
