Truffle Butter Popcorn, Iron Horse Blanc de Blanc

If you had a chance to read yesterday’s post, you would know that I am now enamored with Michael Mina. Here is another reason: 
Truffle Butter Popcorn with Chives as a bar snack!

…which we thoroughly enjoyed with a glass of Michael Mina Iron Horse Blanc de Blanc 2000. Iron Horse produces a limited number of special cuvées for select chefs and restaurateurs including Michael Mina. (And, oh, by the way note the cool leather bar top).

From their website: Blanc de Blanc is the most elegant and sophisticated of the Iron Horse cuvées, made from 100% Chardonnay.

It is ethereal – like drinking a cloud. It seems to effervesce away in your mouth and tastes like, among other flavors, a perfectly browned, lightly buttered slice of sourdough toast.
Ah yes, pair with popcorn anyone?

  1. Oooh! I have truffle oil waiting in my pantry…. Goes without saying that I have popcorn too! Movie night just got sophisticated. I’ll have to watch Il Postino or Cinema Paradiso in lieu of Madagascar or Cars, right?

  2. I keep staring at that popcorn. Clever bar management. It’ll keep you there, ordering more liquor than you were planning to imbibe. : )
