Couscous Vegetable Salad
Bright, fresh and irresistibly crunchy, this couscous salad
is perfect for lunch or a light first course in the summertime.
Couscous, the tiny semolina pasta that is a staple of North
African cuisine, makes a rich base for the salad, while the vegetables
can vary depending on what is available at your local
The rise of highly acclaimed winemaker
Patrick Piuze is an inspirational story. Raised in
a middle-class family in Quebec, Piuze did not
have much exposure to wine. His life changed
at age 18 when he happened to meet Marc
Chapoutier of the famous Rhône-wine family,
who inspired him to venture the world as a harvest
intern. Piuze’s travels took him to wineries
in Australia, South Africa and Israel. Eventually,
he moved back to Montreal and opened a wine
bar called Le Pinot Noir. But ever eager to make
wine, he traveled to France in 2000 and got a
job with Olivier Leflaive’s operation in Chablis.
Piuze finally set out on his own in the summer
of 2008. He buys his fruit but is involved in the
farming and selects only the finest parcels of
mature vines. Les Forêts is considered one of
the great premier cru vineyards of Chablis. This
wine comes from 70-year-old vines.
A nose of concentrated lemon, lime and mineral aromas is garnished with
hints of lanolin and beeswax.
The rich palate offers notes of lemon, apple, nectarine, cream and brioche.
Scallops, shellfish and firm, meaty white fish are all hearty enough to match
the wine’s richness but neutral enough to keep from overwhelming it. The
robust energy and intensity of the Patrick Piuze Chablis make it a good match
for golden roast chicken or light pork dishes. For seasonings, adding citrus
fruits, oils or essences will pick up the citrusy notes in the wine and add a
touch of acidity. We recommend pairing the wine with Warm Oysters with
Leek and Bacon Sauce or Pasta Salad with Crab and Shrimp; find the recipes
Serve chilled: refrigerate the bottle for 30 minutes before serving.
