Martin Pouret Wine Vinegars

Founded in 1797, Martin Pouret is the last producer of authentic French Orleans process vinegars - named after the town of Orleans (known as the "city of vinegars"). An important inland shipping route, Orleans, on the Loire River, was where wines becoming "piques" (beginning to bite or sour) were unloaded from boats to be delivered to local vinegar makers. To this day patents clearly define the production conditions required to use the name "Orleans process."

All Martin Pouret vinegars are made according to the following three standards: (1) selection of excellent wines from the Loire Valley, Bordeaux and Burgundy vineyards, (2) slow and natural transformation of the wine into vinegar, a transformation lasting three weeks in oak barrels, at a constant temperature and in complete darkness, and (3) the vinegar is left to mature or age (the same way as good wine) for one year further in large wooden barrels in cellars before it is put on the market. In addition, Martin Pouret vinegars have a high 6% acidity (the higher the acidity the better the vinegar), unlike common vinegars with only 4-5% acidity. Open a bottle and experience the full-bodied wine aroma and clear, deep, balanced taste of one the world's premier wine vinegars.
