Pommery red wine vinegar is a tangy, well-rounded vinegar that lifts red meat, chicken and red cabbage dishes. The red wine vinegar is matured in oak barrels for 2-6 months to develop the aromas.
Use Pommery red wine vinegar in salad dressings and marinades. It’s ideal for deglazing a pan after searing meat. Then reduce the mixture of meat juices and red wine vinegar over a medium heat, and use as a sauce for your main meal.
Presented in a traditional stoneware jar, just like their mustards, this is an elegant and rustic addition to your pantry or table and a lovely gift for a foodie.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Moutarde de Meaux are regarded as one of the world’s great moutardiers. Their award-winning Pommery mustards are a favourite of professional chefs. All of their mustards are packed in traditional stoneware jars. These jars help to preserve the mustards’ characteristic pungency, so they taste fresher for longer. They’ve also been producing vinegar since 1865, with the same care and passion for great flavour. Just like their mustards, Pommery vinegars come in traditional stoneware bottles.
Pommery mustard is made in Meaux, a cathedral town 60km west of Paris. The town has a long history of mustard production. It began in 771 AD, when Charlemagne decreed that canons and monks in cathedral towns like Meaux should cultivate mustard.
Meaux was also a centre for the quarrying of millstones, which brought many craftsmen to the area. In 1760, a dignitary of the Meaux cathedral chapter passed on the canons’ secret mustard recipe to a stonecutter named J. B. Pommery. That recipe is still used by Moutarde de Meaux to make their famous Pommery mustard today.
