A bottle of Champagne vinegar is an essential pantry ingredient, and the Champagne Vinegar from France's famous nut oil producer, Huilerie J. LeBlanc, is the one of the world's best. Made exclusively from Pinot Gris and Meurniere Champagne grape varieties, this unfiltered vinegar is light, mild and smooth. Use as you would any white vinegar in dressings and marinades. Or, make a classic mignonette with J. LeBlanc Champagne Vinegar and serve alongside freshly shucked oysters and, dare we say it . . . Champagne!
About the Producer
Huilerie J. Leblanc's production of nut oils began in 1878 and has really changed very little as the company now rests on the shoulders of the newest Leblanc, Jean Charles. At the factory in Burgundy, pounds of nuts are ground into a paste, what is essentially nut butter, and this paste is roasted. And that's really it! This paste is allowed to settle and the oil is drained off creating a decadent nut oil with the most luxurious flavor and creamy texture. What is left is the most pronounced essence of the oils within the nut.
