FOOD, DRINKS

AND WINES

BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER, YOU NAME IT....

We cooperate with several restaurants and 5-star hotels which are situated along the canal banks. They serve their dishes, a la carte, on our saloon boat so you can be assured of choice and freshest possible food. Apart from that we serve, on special request, starters or a dessert that is prepared by Elga with a lot of tender loving care. She is famous for her desserts, you better beware! Nothing is served on our boat before we have tested and approved of it, ourselves. And believe me; we love food! Well prepared and biological or biodynamical. Our a la carte dinner tours are an unforgettable adventure ! Of course we can serve you a proper breakfast, lunch or just  some small delicacies to acccompany an aperitive.

 

Special diets?

 No gluten? Allergic? Please do tell us and will find a solution for you.

We love the good things in life and wine is definitely one of them!

A friend of ours would state: "Bad wine? A waste of your thirst!". We totally agree on that point of view.

This is why we only carry biologically and (or) biodynamically produced wines. Preferrably from enthousiastic, small scale, wine producers that we know personally.

 

Our wines on board start from great and up.

 

THE WINES IN OUR STANDARD STOCK

These are the wines that we always stock on board of the Lieve in the climate wine cabinet. Different wines can be served to go with a particular menu or dish. Virtually anything is possible.

 

WHITE

 

 Gaba Do Xil

Our white house wine. Spanish prize winner. Made by the famous Spanish wine maker Telmo Rodriguez.

Broad and aromatic taste with an aftertouch of exotic fruit. Combines great with spicy fish dishes and a lot more.

 

Bucci Verdicchio Classico Superiore.

Italy, Marche area. Typically straw coloured. Dry with minerals, spicy accents and a hint of apple. Light acidity with an aftertouch of smoked almonds. Perfect in combination with fish and Pecorino style cheeses. A beautiful, stylish and correct Italian.

 

Viré Clessée Domaine Michel

France, a white Burgundy from a small corner of the Burgundy area; Quintaine. 100 % chardonnay harvested from at least 50 years old grapevines. NOT lagered on wooden barrels but in stainless steel. This makes it a variety of this typical Burgundy which shows a surprising freshness without the heavy wood taste. Dangerously nice wine!  One of our personal favourites.

 

RED

House wine: Torre Del Falasco

Used grapes are: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. This is the typical Valpolicella cepage. Made 'ripasso'  style. This is a technique in which grapes that were used for Amarone production are mixed with the cepage and one more time give their typical fruity, velvety cherry taste to this wine. Thus producing a wine tasting more complex than one would expect in this early stage. Everybody loves this one, really!

 

 Cuvée Les Ardoises des Erles uit de Fitou

French wine as it should be. A cepage of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache. Full bodied, red fruit, spices and wood tones. Soft tannines and a long aftertaste. Made by a member of the famous wine makers family Lurton; Francis.

 

 Araucano Clos de Lolol

Red top of the bill wine from our assortment. Cepage is Cabernet Franc, Carmenere and Syrah. Complex taste with undertones of ripe fruit, pepper, liquorice, leather and spices. A lot of smooth tannines. A truly powerful red wine from Chili, also produced by Francis Lurton. Begs for a big piece of red meat.

 

CHAMPAGNES

 

 Champagne De Venoge Cordon Bleu

 Made according to the typical cepage of 50% Pinot noir, 25% pinot meunier and 25% chardonnay. Pale yellow, fine mousse. Soft and smooth nose with hints of white fruit, brioche, minerals and light oxidation tones In your mouth it presents smokey minerals and apple. Not too sweet and with a nice aftertaste.

 

Bollinger Special Cuvée

The classical topchampagne. James Bond's favourite. Bright and pale yellow coloured with a golden core. Copious and complex aromas. Toasted with a hint of oxidation; very typical for Bollinger. Famous for her fine and classy mousse. Full of character and elegance. The good life bottled, uncork it!
