This Orléans white wine vinegar is produced using the traditional Orléans method, which is the meeting between French terroir, air and time. We added to our vinegar some fresh shallots from Brittany.
The unique process of the traditional Orléans method :
The transformation of the wine into vinegar is made by a natural surface fermentation, with neither brewing nor addition of ferments. The wine, sheltered from light, in "vaisseaux" which are 240 liters oak barrels, will slowly turn into vinegar at a constant 30°c temperature.
To produce a good vinegar, we need a good wine. So our winemakers are part of the French vineyards. Most of them are from the Loire Valley for the white wines and from Bordeaux for the red ones.
We have selected the shallots from Brittany for the delicacy and the richness of their flavour.
A good vinegar is the encounter between our know-how and our French terroirs.
Using our high quality vinegar will let you appreciate the subtle balance between the sourness of our vinegar and the flavour of the shallots.
