Sauvignon Blanc AOC Haut-Poitou 2017, white wine (75 cl)

Though not widely known, the Haut-Poitou AOC (controlled designation of origin) label boasts several hidden gems, starting with this Sauvignon Blanc, whose intensely fruity aroma and citrus notes won the silver medal at the 2017 Concours Général de Paris. In the mouth, it strikes a nice balance between freshness and fullness. This delicate, fruity, delectable wine makes an ideal aperitif.

Recommendations: serve chilled between 8 and 10º C; pair with seafood, exotic and spicy dishes, sushi, cold cuts or farmer’s cheese.

Made the good old-fashioned way, these organic rillettes of Saint-Jacques (scallops) are prepared according to an authentic recipe from a Breton family cannery with all-natural products, a 100% Breton delicacy you can fully taste in mouth: the rillettes manage to preserve all the finesse and freshness of scallops, a true delicacy!

Savoury crab terrine with a dash of cognac (90 g)

Les Mets d’Aimé, a pair of passionate artisan canners, delight foodies with their tried and true family recipes made from meat and seafood with no preservatives, artificial colouring or added sugar. They are firmly committed to the Clean Label movement, guaranteeing the use of natural, healthy, unadulterated ingredients. We absolutely loved the texture and flavour of this crab terrine with a delicate hint of cognac, a signature liqueur in this part of France.

Washed down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from your gourmet box, it’s a little taste of heaven.

 
Jar of limpet and razor clam persillade (90 g)

gourmet seafood products gourmet gift boxProducer: Conserverie Artisanale La Chikolodenn.

These artisan canners of traditional Breton recipes are named after the bonnet once worn by the women of Saint Pol de Léon in northern Finistère. The persillade we've selected is a creamy, mousse-like spread made of parsley, garlic, oil, limpets and razor clams that’s guaranteed to impress. Perfect as an appetizer spread on toast with a lemon wedge on top. Or, if you want the full Breton experience, serve it hot over a baked potato.

 
Savoury goat cheese and rosemary 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 traditional biscuits in bronze moulds. Genuine goat cheese and rosemary 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.

 
Sea tartare with seaweed, lemon and shallots (90 g)

Sea Tartare Maritime gourmet boxArtisan: Christine Le Tennier.

With this innovative concoction, you'll discover a surprising, savoury, all-natural blend of three types of seaweed. It's not pâté, it's not mousse... it's a gourmet delicacy with character, a new concept of creative cuisine based on unusual combinations of natural products. A bold creation with flair and flavour to spare!

For the perfect snack, just spread it on toast or serve as a dip with raw veggie sticks.

 
Sardinade, savoury sardine and black olive paste (80 g)

Savoury sardine spread seafood gourmet boxArtisan: Les Oréliades.

A unique fusion of ocean spray and Mediterranean sunshine! This sardinade is a savoury paste made from natural organic products: sardines, black olives, capers, and not much else. Perfect for spreading on toast or dipping with raw veggies (cucumber and carrot sticks, for instance), it’s a classic tapenade with a fresh, salty twist.

 
CANDIED PÉRIGORD WALNUTS WITH GUÉRANDE FLEUR DE SEL (90 g)

Candied Perigord Wallnuts French gift 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 basic ingredient in every recipe, but they add sugar, caramel, spices or condiments to create a wide range of flavours and textures. We chose candied Périgord walnuts seasoned with a special sea salt, Guérande fleur de sel, for their originality (a change from the more conventional cashews), surprising taste (the salty-sweet contrast is outstanding) and extra-crunchy texture. These sinfully delicious morsels are too tempting to resist.

 

PLUS, WE’VE INCLUDED A FEW LITTLE ITEMS TO MAKE YOUR GOURMET MOMENT EVEN MORE ENJOYABLE—BUT WE DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE SURPRISE!

    Je suis fan de vos box mais la Marine est je crois ma préférée, sûrement parce que je suis bretonne... La présentation est magnifique avec tous les petits détails qui sont un vrai plus au niveau visuel (la carte postale est superbe, les serviettes assorties avec le papier de soie, les rince-doigts etc....) et les produits sont un vrai délice, et très variés. Je recommande sans hésitation.
