Great Taste 2019 2-star award winner
Vinaigre de Pineau à la Crème de Cassis is made from rosé wine vinegar and blackcurrants. AOC Pineau des Charentes, the famous and delicious local aperitif wine of the Cognac region, is aged for four years before acetification in old oak cognac barrels for a further four to five months. Then bottled unfiltered, it has a bright rosé colour, fruity flavour and aroma. It is then combined with blackcurrants that have been gently boiled down to a concentrated must. The delicate acidity of this sweet and fruity vinegar is perfect for sensual vinaigrettes and marinades. Deglaze pans after cooking red meats, game, chicken and guinea fowl. It's brilliant with calves liver and pan-fried apples or pears! We like to add to flash-fried chicken livers in the pan and drizzle over smoked duck breast carpaccio.
