Caviar d’Aquitaine with Sauternes wine

Caviar. It is not for every day eating, but it is delicious. Not least the caviar from Bordeaux. In the past, there were wild sturgeons in the Gironde. But today the Bordeaux caviar, the caviar d’aquitaine, comes from farmed sturgeon. It takes about ten years from the birth of the fish until the valuable caviar can be harvested from the females, approximately one kilogram per fish.

This interesting short video shows how the process works. The video was made in collaboration with the excellent Château Guiraud in Sauternes, so naturally this is the suggested wine to drink with your caviar. Maybe not a choice that comes first to your mind but but certainly worth a try. Read more:

Perhaps you will get to taste wome caviar d’aquitaine on the Bordeaux wine tour this autumn. If not, at least you will taste some sauternes.
