Seasoned with ground peppercorns, mignonette is a classic sauce that is served with raw oysters. Here, we add freshly ground pink peppercorns. Fruity and slightly sweet, pink peppercorns are not true peppercorns but are the dried berries of the Baies rose plant.

Wine PairingThis pairs well with medium-bodied sparkling wines like the Dominio de la Vega Cava Brut Reserva Especial, Utiel-Requena from our Wine Club.
