L’Hostellerie Jérôme, La Turbie, 8
July 8, 2014
On June 15, 2014, Linda and I returned to L’Hostellerie Jérôme with Ron and June.
We ordered a bottle of Champagne: “Fidèle” by Vouette & Sorbet. Very good. This was followed by a bottle of 2003 “La Migoua” Bandol from Domaine Tempier.
La Migoua is one of their premium vineyards and is a luscious wine, particularly when it has some age as it did here.
We ordered the evening’s four-course menu.
Centrolophe noir, asperges violettes, huile d’olive.
The chunk of blackfish was perfectly cooked, crisp on the outside, tender and moist inside. It was served simply with seasonal asparagus and olive oil. Nice.
Pigeonneau, réduction d’olives noires au vin de Bandol
The squab and a piece of sautéed foie gras were dressed with a sauce of black olives and Bandol wine. They were accompanied by sautéed cèpe and girolle mushrooms. This was a good, rich finish to the savory courses.
Our meal was very enjoyable. Each course was well composed and well executed with good ingredients, many of them seasonal and local. Madame Cirino is an excellent hostess. The ambience was welcoming and calm. We are fortunate to have L’Hostellerie Jerome as our favorite nearby restaurant.
