With onion confit, a small miracle occurs: as the Roscoff onion begins to caramelize, it simmers slowly to concentrate incredible flavors. The entire onion is used in this recipe -- even the skin -- for a zero-waste recipe. For the British twist, we added orange marmalade. The result is a sweet and savory onion confit that is a pleasure to eat. This recipe will earn you kudos from all your friends. In any case, we can at least assure you that Sorted Food gave it a thumbs up!

"Prime mid purple with a racy exuberant nose. The stems -one third retained- add real energy here with really vigorous raspberry fruit, a little youthful bitterness but balanced and long." Jasper Morris
Vinification & maturing :
The grapes are never crushed, a major part of the grapes is destemmed and we keep around 30% as whole bunches. Alcohol fermentation is achieved with indigenous yeast. The wine is subjected to gentle cap-punching or pigeage during vatting. After 18 to 20 days, we devat and blend free run wine with press wine for maturation in Burgundian oak barrels, 15% of which are new. A third of the cuvée is matured in large Foudre oak vats.
