Our Sauternes French gourmet Gift box: enjoy a grand apéro with Sauternes!

SAUTERNES and Foie-Gras DELUXE HORS D'OEUVRES GIFT BOX

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 cuisine with a great Sauternes 2007. Pretty on the outside and chock-full of scrumptious products on the inside, this food and wine gift box has everything you need to enjoy a grand apero, a word that describes the time-honoured French tradition of sharing drinks, hors d'oeuvres and golden moments with family and friends.


Salty, spicy, crunchy, creamy... in this gourmet box you'll find all the savoury staples of an authentic French hors d'oeuvres party, including an homemade foie-gras from Dordogne and an exceptional Sauternes 2007, for a gourmet experience that's guaranteed to please even the most discerning palates. 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?

DELUXE SAUTERNES and foie gras GIFT BOX FOR GOURMET AND HAPPY HORS D'OEUVRES MOMENTS!

Château Lamothe-Guignard, Sauternes Second Cru Classé 2007, 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 2007 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 2007 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!

 
HOMEMADE WHOLE DUCK FOIE-GRAS from Dordogne (120 g)

Homemade foie gras Sauternes gift box La gourmet BoxArtisan: Danos Frères.

Foie-Gras: a long-time classic of French cuisine elaborated by a small artisan of Dordogne regularly rewarded for the quality of its products. All-natural ingredients—whole duck liver, salt, pepper and nothing else—are combined to create this exquisite delicacy. 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…

 
THE AUTHENTIC FRENCH DUCK RILLETTES WITH HOMEMADE FOIE GRAS (110 G)

foie Gras rillettes Sauternes gift box La gourmet BoxArtisan: Danos Frères.

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.

 
ARTICHOKE DELIGHT WITH SUMMER WHITE TRUFFLE (110 G)

artichoke-summer-white-truffle-spreadArtisan: Le Temps des Mets.

Here's a gourmet spread that will quickly become a must for your aperitifs! The cream of artichoke with white summer truffle is delicious to spread on toast or lightly toasted brioches. You will find in this melting texture the elegant taste of the artichoke, enhanced by the white summer truffle that subtly diffuses its flavors. A real treat for foodies!

 
ARTISAN SAUCISSON SEC WITH ITS CLOTH BAG (320 g)

Artisan saucisson sec La Gourmet Box food basket appetizerArtisan: Maison Duculty.

This dry-cured farmhouse sausage is a renowned speciality of Lyon, one of the cradles of French gastronomy. It comes in many different sizes and flavours: our box contains the original saucisson sec, but there are also nut, peppercorn, cheese, smoked and other varieties. We chose this particular sausage because it is made the traditional way from fresh pork with no dyes or preservatives. Important: like all natural sausages, this product has a long shelf life and will not rot unless you keep it for several years. But it is possible and indeed common to find something called “bloom”, a white or occasionally greenish mould that grows naturally on the sausage casing. This mould is penicillium, from which we derive penicillin, and is found in a variety of food products (such as Roquefort and other blue cheeses). It is perfectly healthy and is even a sign of the sausage’s quality as long as it does not develop an unpleasant odour. The casing is 100% natural and perfectly edible, but we recommend that you remove it before eating to appreciate the full flavour and finesse of this artisanal sausage. Store in the canvas bag included in the gift box and keep it on the bottom shelf of your fridge. Serve in thin slices for a deliciously flavourful appetizer.

 
Savoury green Tapenade from Provence (80g)

tapenade-french-hors-d-oeuvreArtisan: Les Oréliades, Catrice Gourmet.

Located in Provence, Var, the family business Catrice Gourmet produces Provencal specialties using all-natural products in the purest local culinary tradition.

This olive "puree" is made from green olives coarsely ground. Capers and anchovy cream are then added. This tapenade is a morsel of Provence that's sure to delight and amaze your guests at any summer hors-d'oeuvres party.

 
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 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.

 
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.

 
PLUS, A FEW SURPRISES TO MAKE YOUR GOURMET MOMENT EVEN MORE ENJOYABLE

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 delicacies truly memorable! Starting with the corkscrew, maybe the most essential element of this box.

  1. Jérôme Laroque11/21/2018

    Excellent coffret autour du foie-gras: le "classique foie gras" est particulièrement réussi (surtout avec un petit verre de Sauternes;-) mais les rillettes et la crême sont tops ! Tous les produits en fait et décidement j'adore la présentation de vos coffrets ! C'est mon 3eme différent et pour l'instant jamais déçu, au contraire !
