Bouchon de Bordeaux

Get ready to be transported to the heart of Bordeaux with a truly unique and sophisticated delicacy - the Bouchon De Bordeaux. This exquisite treat is a perfect fusion of macerated grapes infused with the finest Bordeaux grape brandy, and a delectable almond paste enveloping a delicate pastry cigarette cookie. Originally crafted in 1976 by the talented Chef Jacques Pouquet, this elegant confection has stood the test of time and continues to captivate the palates of connoisseurs around the world. Having had the honor of working closely with Chef Jacques Pouquet in the 90s, I can attest to the artistry and precision that goes into creating the perfect Bouchon De Bordeaux. The rich flavors of the macerated grapes, the subtle hint of the grape brandy, and the nutty undertones of the almond paste come together to create a symphony of taste that is both luxurious and comforting.
