Le Baume de Bouteville

French artisanal vinegar aged in Cognac cask
The Baume de Bouteville is a handcrafted French balsamic vinegar, produced in the village of Bouteville in the Cognac area of western France. It is crafted from freshly harvested Ugni Blanc grapes, which descend from the same grape families as the world-renowned Trebbiano and white St-Émilion. After the “chauffe” process (heating at more than 60°C) in copper pot alembics, the Baume de Bouteville is carefully aged for several years in oak barrels that previously contained Cognac.
