The flavours linger across the mouth between each sip, subtly hinting at the delicate tartness of the coffee. Secondly, Le Noix de Pecan is a nut and dried fruit-based dessert. The roasted dried fruits have flavours that are reminiscent of those found in the coffee, with a touch of caramel and burnt bread that echoes the cereal notes of the wheat ingredient used in Grey Goose. The oils in the pecan nut enable the aromas in the mouth linger. Next comes La Vanille de Madagascar. The vanilla of Madagascar is often used in patisseries to create full bodied flavours. Due to its fragrant flavour, the vanilla prepares the palate by subtly coating with the delicate flavour, counterbalancing the acidity and bitterness of the coffee, creating a flavour profile of gently roasted wheat, bringing out the variety of uninterrupted flavours. Finally, Le Chocolate de Madagascar incorporates 42% milk chocolate, which adds a sweet touch, perfectly harmonised with the aromas of the coffee. The chocolate brings a rounded sweetness to the desserts. The Madagascan chocolate has notes of yellow fruits with peach aromas, subtly hinting at the gentle fruit notes found in Grey Goose that gradually envelop the mouth. This stunning vodka, which forms the basis of this entire wondrous concept, is simplicity itself, as it uses only two single origin French ingredients, soft winter wheat from Picardy and spring water from Gensac-La-Pallue, which are blended together by the Cellar Master François Thibault. La Brûlerie de Belleville barista team has chosen the finest single origin Kenyan coffee, the acidity and exotic citrus fruit notes blend perfectly with the naturally rich and full-bodied taste of Grey Goose, to create the ultimate Espresso Martini cocktail. Overall, this unique concept offers a great way to experience the French way of dining and enjoying dessert. The Grey Goose Café Gourmand will be available from selected bars and restaurants across the UK, so you won’t have to travel so far to indulge in this luscious concept for yourself.To find out more visit http://
