New : Valérie's secrets revealed

Spring 2011 -  Coquilles Saint Jacques au safran (Scallops in saffron sauce)

Ingredients (for 4 people) : 400 g of scallops, ½ onion, ½ glass of white wine, 20 cl of cream, 12 filaments of saffron from Domaine de la Chouette, pepper, butter.

Chop onion finely and cook very gently in a generous amount of butter (without letting it brown).  Add the white wine and reduce to a third.  Add the cream and bring back to a simmer.  As soon as it starts to simmer remove from the heat.  Wait for several minutes and then add the saffron.  Leave to rest for one hour.

Melt a large knob of butter in a frying pan and sauté the scallops (without browning them).  Add the saffron sauce and reduce the heat to ensure it does not come to the boil.  Adjust  seasoning to taste.

Serve with basmati rice and a glass of dry white wine, such as Domaine de la Chouette Graves Sec.

Bon appétit !!

The secret :

The white wine used in the recipe is the Graves Supérieures from Domaine de la Chouette.  In a sauce it adds volume and a touch of sweetness.

Revue du Vin de France

Our 2005 red (Graves Rouge) was selected by the Revue du Vin de France for inclusion in their 2008 wise purchasing guide.

A rough translation: Domaine de la Chouette 2005 Graves Rouge is an elegant full-bodied wine with densely concentrated flavors, distinguished by its maturity, robust tannins, and a strong finish. Well crafted with a good pedigree, it can be kept for 2 or 3 years in the cellar.

The Revue du Vin de France also named us as one of the new talents in France.  This distinction is reserved for young domains which are judged to be the hope of their region.
