The Aromas of Référence Balsamic Vinegar by Huilerie Beaujolaise
Référence Balsamic Vinegar has a sweet and sour taste with notes of cooked fruits, vanilla, and a woody flavor. It has a dark brown color with red reflections. These characteristics make it a highly appreciated ingredient for vinaigrettes, marinades, reductions, and even desserts.
The Production of Référence Balsamic Vinegar by Huilerie Beaujolaise
Référence Balsamic Vinegar is a treasure from Italy, crafted according to Huilerie Beaujolaise's own recipe and bottled in their own facilities, which is why it does not carry the Modena origin designation. Balsamic vinegar is made from partially fermented grape must to which wine vinegar is added, and it then undergoes an aging process. This aging process, with a minimum duration of 60 days from the start of the transformation of raw materials, involves a meticulous blending of these materials in the right proportions.
At the end of this period, the product is subjected to analytical and organoleptic evaluation by a group of technical experts and tasters. This crucial step determines whether the product can be certified as balsamic vinegar. After 60 days of aging in wooden vats, Modena balsamic vinegar can also be further aged. This vinegar is aged for 3 years in oak barrels before being bottled for commercialization.
How to Use Référence Balsamic Vinegar
Its culinary possibilities are endless: it enhances red meats, elevates roasts, enriches risottos, pairs beautifully with cheeses, and adds a surprising touch to ice creams.
