Garlic, Cider and Saussignac

No this is not some rogue French menu, but on our meanderings through the web we came across another supplier of wonderful French foodstuffs called French Flavour based in Wrexham, North Wales and offering mail order.
What really took our attention was that apart from Garlic Strings, Duck Pate, Cassoulet, Confit de Canard, Trout, Olives, Foie Gras, Trout Soup, Tapenade, Beer, Olive Oils, Wild Boar and Pork Pate they also stock Guy Cuisset’s Saussignac AC, Chateau Grinou..
This small sub-appellation of Bergerac (24 Dordogne, Aquitaine) produces some superb dessert wines. At ALLEZ VINS! we used to stock this delicious sweet wine, which won a Gold and numerous Silver Medals at the Wine Magazine International Wine Challenge.- a lush dessert wine made from botrytised (noble rot) Sémillon grapes (in the same way as Sauternes and Monbazillac) but retaining huge and vibrant fruitiness – fermented and matured in new oak with real skill by Guy Cuisset. “This is a real find from the far reaches of South west France. A cornucopia of dried apricots and fragrant pear flavours with hints of cinnamon and spice. There is a freshness to the acidity that lifts the wine and gives a purity to the great length” also stock an interesting selection of French foods seldom seen elsewhere in the UK – some interesting Trout preparations from the Pyrenees, white and smoked garlic strings and a range of interesting ciders from Picardie.
