Roast chicken is a bit like the ultimate return from the market dish, friendly and comforting, in short a dish that pleases everyone with its tender flesh, its crispy skin, all flavored with aromatics. And there’s nothing better to accompany it than hash browns. And to enhance your spit-roasted or oven-roasted chicken, we’ll start with a powerful white with floral notes, with a tense finish to energize the mouth like a Vacqueyras Blanc.
