Our Sauternes and Foie-Gras French gourmet Gift box: enjoy a grand apéro with Sauternes!

(5 reviews)

We couldn't resist the temptation to prepare a special gourmet foie-gras and Sauternes gift box packed with exceptional hors d'oeuvres that would allow our customers to sample the best of French foie-gras with a great Sauternes 2005. Pretty on the outside and chock-full of scrumptious products on the inside, this foie-gras and sauternes gift basket has everything you need to enjoy a premium typical French Christmas apero, a word that describes the time-honoured French tradition of sharing drinks, hors d'oeuvres and golden moments with family and friends. We've even thrown in an eye-popping—or, better said, cork-popping—surprise... but then again, maybe it's just an oven-fresh baguette! Can you stand the suspense?

Château Lamothe-Guignard, Sauternes Second Cru Classé 2005, white wine (75 cl)

Chateau Lamothe Guignard Sauternes Second Cru Classe 2007 Family-owned winery: Les frères Guignard.

In the valley of the River Ciron, near the Sauternes AOC region, lies Château Lamothe Guignard. Since 1981, Jacques and Philippe Guignard have been the lords and masters of the château. Their vineyards grow in a wide variety of soils, and the influence of the nearby River Ciron creates unique climate conditions that intensify the peculiar noble rot of Semillon (the dominant variety in Sauternes), Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grapes.

Harvested in optimal conditions, the 2005 vintage of this sweet Sauternes white has a fairly intense, brilliant golden yellow colour. Subtle notes of citrus, smoke and minerals compete for second place in a bouquet dominated by fruit with hints of candied sweetness.

Flavourful in the mouth, with a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity, clean and crisp on the tongue and palette and richly aromatic. Though velvety, the feel is light rather than ponderous. Good structure and magnificently long finish. On the nose, wafts of candied lemon, jelly, smoke and wet stone.

A great wine to pair with classic foie-gras, desserts with yellow and/or exotic fruits, blue cheeses or Asian dishes (curries, Thai and Indian dishes, etc.).

This 2005 vintage from Château Lamothe Guignard is an unmitigated success. Uncork and savour it now... or let it age a few years more, if you can stand the suspense!

Premium Artisanal Foie gras with a hint of pepper and Champagne (200 g)

Artisan-french-foie-grasCraftsman: Huguier Frères.

Tasted recently while doing our Christmas shopping, this artisanal foie-gras immediately seduced us during a blind tasting. Respectful of tradition, our craftsman offers us an excellent foie-gras cooked to perfection with champagne if you please!

Fine and melting in the mouth, with just a hint of pepper, this is a delicious foie gras that highlights the raw material with a delicate know-how. 

Just a premium Christmas artisanal foie gras perfectly made. A must-try for Foie-gras lovers!To fully appreciate the subtle aroma and flavour of this gourmet product, we recommend letting it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before eating. Cut it into very thin slices, serve on a toasted piece of country bread and sprinkle salt on top for an unforgettably flavourful deluxe treat.

If you have a glass of Sauternes’ wine (included in your gourmet gift box) with it, you will just get closer to what a French gourmet could call paradise…

Premium artisan Plural of Foie gras with orange (120 g)

Artisan-french-foie-grasCraftsman: Le Médaillon Corrézien, Farmhouse of André Ourcet and Catherine Le Clanche.

Met by chance during the preparation of one of our French gourmet hamper, we had already been able to verify that André is not only a specialist in the enhancement of fattened duck but also a lover of taste.

Respectful of the environment and of tradition, he makes sure that his productions are as close as possible to what nature gives him: without artifice (no chemical flavouring, no nitrite salt, no preservatives and no antioxidants), just enhanced with a touch of orange perfectly integrated, it is a delicious foie gras which magnifies the premium ingredients he uses with a delicate know-how.

A great moment of gastronomy is coming for the amateurs with the tasting of these 2 artisanal foie-gras of outstanding quality!

Brut Rosé Champagne wine confit (40 g)

champagne-appetizerArtisan: Délices Décadol

Anchored in Champagne, our craftsman makes exceptional products with champagne as the main ingredients of course...

Without colouring, flavouring or preservatives, this Champagne “confit” (close to an elegant mermelade) is a real delight and will accompany your home-made foie gras and other delicacies you will find in your Christmas hamper in a very refined way.

A "Coup de coeur" of La Gourmet Box!

Chestnut, Foie Gras & Ceps gourmet Cream (100 g)

chestnut-foie-gras-cep-creamArtisan: Le Temps des Mets.

Here is a gastronomic spread that will quickly become a must for your aperitifs!

The chestnut, foie gras and cep cream is delicious spread on toast or on a lightly toasted brioche. It will melt into the brioche before delighting your palate.

You will find the elegant taste of the chestnut, then the sweetness of the foie gras and finally the long finish of the cep.

A real festive treat!

Savoury Organic Cantal cheese biscuits (120 g)

craft made products Cantal-Auvergne gourmet basketArtisan: Biscuiterie Apiflor.

We made our way to a village called Madic, on the border between the départements of Cantal and Corrèze, where we met an artisan who makes delicious organic traditional biscuits in bronze moulds.

Genuine Cantal AOC cheese is added to the biscuit dough for a truly unique flavour. Ideal for nibbling with a glass of wine from your gourmet box—a crisp gourmet treat! Serving suggestion: to bring out the full flavour of these biscuits, bake them in the oven 2-3 minutes before serving.


foie-Gras-rillettesArtisan: Maison Patignac.

Rillettes, a 100% French delicacy, is a savoury spread similar to pâté but with a coarser, meatier texture topped by a protective film of lard. The all-natural product we chose was made the old-fashioned way: shredded duck (raised by the artisans) is emulsified in its own juices for hours and seasoned with salt and pepper. When it get colder, our artisan just add some piece of foie-gras.

Just a must-try ! Serve it spread on toast to experience all the rich nuances of its delectable flavour.

Organic caramelized cashew nuts with a hint of Kâmpôt pepper (110 g)

organic-cashew-nuts-vegetarian-boxArtisan: L'Attelier de Clisson.

At this small shop in Guérande, a town in southwest France famed for its butter and salt, every product is made using traditional methods and all-natural local ingredients. Nuts are the common denominator in every recipe, but they add sugar, caramel, spices or condiments to create a wide range of flavours and textures.

For our Christmas gift box we chose organic caramelized cashew nuts seasoned with Kâmpôt pepper for their originality (a change from the more conventional cashews), surprising taste (the pepper-sweet contrast is outstanding) and super-extra-crunchy texture. These sinfully delicious morsels are too tempting to resist.

Chocolate Cabecous Christmas cookies (95g)

craft-christmas-chocolate-cookiesArtisan-chocolate maker: Maison Guinguet

Although a cabécou is a goat's milk cheese from the Massif Central, these little delicacies only look like it!

Maison Guinguet plays on this discrepancy by offering us these cabécous which are in fact delicious crispy and melting chocolate morsels with hazelnut praline and crêpe dentelle under a white chocolate coating... With a glass of Sauternes' wine you will have a great moment for sure.

Enjoying yourself while having fun, that's the magic of Christmas! Be careful, there won't be enough for everyone!


At La Gourmet Box, we're all about thoughtful details, which is why we've tucked some surprises among these delicious products to make your feast of French premium foie-gras truly memorable! Starting with the corkscrew, maybe the most essential element of this box.
