Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,
Nestled in the steep, ancient terraces of the Languedoc Roussillon region in the southwest of France is a small Mediterranean seaside town called Banyuls-sur-Mer. This is where they produce the AOC Wine of Banyuls. So it's no wonder that the grapes grown on the region's ancient vines also yield one of the world's finest vinegars: Le Vinaigre de Banyuls. Made from the naturally sweet wine of Banyuls, the grape base for this very small production of "vin doux natural" (no sugar added) is 50% Grenache noir, 40% Grenache gris, and 10% Carignan.
Banyuls Vinegar (La Cave de l'Abbe Rous) has amazing aromas of walnut, spice cake, beeswax, vanilla, and licorice. Le Vinaigre de Banyuls is a fierce rival to both Italian balsamico and Spanish sherry vinegar. Its distinct nut-like qualities make it the perfect companion for vinaigrettes made with hazelnut and walnut oils, or high-quality extra virgin olive oils. And when you're in the mood for something really special use Le Vinaigre de Banyuls as a marinade for fish, or to deglaze the pan after sauteing duck, mushrooms, or even... foie gras!
This vinegar is aged for 6 years in oak barrels, and is bottled at the estate of Abbe Rous in France.
Buy this wonderful vinegar in 375 milliliter (12.7 fluid ounce) glass bottles for only $15.95!
