Gassac Balsamic Vinegar
This vinegar is a one-off, we’d say almost traditional, masterpiece made from the must of the historic, traditional Servent grape. The white grapes used to be picked at the end of October or early November when very ripe and fruity, and hung on wooden beams in lofts, to be served at Christmas on the “thirteen desserts” table. Sadly, nowadays the vines of this beautiful grape are being dug out. But, helped by our wine producing partners and friends at Villeveyrac, at the end of October we harvest the best bunches which are immediately pressed and their development curbed at cold temperatures.
The wonderful must, saturated with sugar and aromas, is immediately sent to a small company in Burgundy which has, for many years, specialized in producing balsamic vinegar. The firm helps us produce a limited number of bottles of this incomparable “sweet-sour” vinegar, a vital ingredient in many recipes.
Remember, balsamic vinegar is an art form in its own right, and most especially one produced from a sweet, aromatic, faultless source
