An Exquisite Evening of Foie Gras, Artisanal Cheese & French Wines


 An Exquisite Evening of Foie Gras, Artisanal Cheese & French Wines

Last night I was joined by Ariane Daguin, founder and owner of D’Artagnan, celebrating twenty five years of delivering the world’s finest organic and natural meats to four-star chefs and home gourmets alike. Ariane brought a lovely selection of Foie Gras, each of them delicious. She also recommended some wine types from her native land in southwest France.

I love the wines of that region, as well as the cheeses and the charcuterie. Ariane’s products are all made here but the methods of production are true to her native land. The wines we tasted included a white Bergerac that was made with Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, quite similar to the white Bordeaux that are produced a little to the north. The second wine was a Madiran produced with a blend of Tannat and Cabernet Franc, inky delicious, with good tannins. The final wine was a Jurançon made with a blend of the lesser-known varietals of the region: Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng. This wine reminded me of a fine Sauternes, just a little less viscous with good acidity.

As you might expect, the Jurançon was the clear winner with the Fois Gras, Sauternes and Foie Gras being a popular match. It also proved to be a great wine partner each of the cheeses: Chabichou du Poitou, Fleur du Maquis, Abbaye de Belloc, Le Moulis, Fleuron, and Bleu de Laqueuille.

The first wine paired very well with all the Foie Gras, which may be a bit of a surprise to some. The honey note offered by the Sémillon was held aloft by the acidity in the Sauvignon Blanc, and with the absence of tannins this wine had a youthfulness that did not overwhelm the Foie Gras.

The red Madiran just didn’t find much synergy with any of the Foie Gras, at least for most of our palates. Fortunately we had four nice cheeses to stand up to this robust wine: the Fleur du Maquis, the Abbaye de Belloc, Le Moulis, and the Fleuron.

I noticed that Ariane finished all six of her cheeses; she complimented our team on delivering each of these cheeses precisely at their peaks. It was a delicious and very satisfying evening. We look forward to having her come back again soon, or as soon as her busy schedule permits.
