Sauternes wine and foie gras, a winning combination

What a great combination. A company that sells foie gras buys a Sauternes château. The château is famous Château Rayne Vigneau. The buyer is Trésor du Patrimoine, a company that sells foie gras as well as wine on line. The seller is the French bank Crédit Agricole but they will retain a small share.

A classic French gastronomic combination is foie gras with a sweet wine. And if it is duck’s liver, foie gras de canard, a speciality of the south western part of France, the wine should preferably be a Sauternes. In Sauternes even chateaux like Rayne Vigneau that were classified as Grand Cru Classé in 1855 are struggling with declining sales and consumers who do not really understand when to drink Sauternes.
