We have written several times about Colline du Colombier, and for good reason. This marvellous rural ‘auberge-style’ restaurant has been created by Maison Troisgros almost as an antithesis to their more formal and famous 3-star restaurant in Roanne.
Colline du Colombier never ceases to enthrall. Situated in a countryside idyll in the nearby region of Southern Burgundy (Sud Bourgogne), and close to the beautiful village of Iguerande.
This opportunity for another visit was my wife’s birthday, so we went with great anticipation, and were most definitely not disappointed!
My wife, Lucy, had the ‘Menu en Novembre’
Pisé de saumon et de légumes frais
Truite à peine fumée, à l’oseille
Sablé à la banane et au chocolat
I had ‘Le Menu “Rendezvous” ‘
Le lièvre à la royale
Gratin d’oranges ” Madame France”
Our son, Ellis, had ‘Le Menu pour les enfants’ which consisted of a Charolais beef steak with potatoes, followed by ‘Dariole au Chocolat’ with vanilla ice cream – he loved it!!
Lucy and I started with a white wine kir (flavoured mûre), followed by an exceptional red wine, selected by La Maison Troisgros – Saint Joseph 2007 by Paul Jaboulet.
With the sun shining, amazing surroundings, impeccable food, and efficient, infor,al service, it was a very good birthday celebration !
We’ll be going again, when another good excuse in the calendar occurs !
