Rôti de canard du Lac Brome à l’orange


  • 1 Brome Lake duck roast
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) duck fat or olive oil
  • 3 French shallots finely chopped
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) fresh orange juice

Wine Suggestion

Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh – blanc moelleux*

Do you like mellow sweet wines, the most famous being from Sauternes? Then this pairing is for you! Made from the Arrufiac, Petit Manseng and Courbu grape varieties from southwest France, this mellow wine is both full-bodied and intense. Hints of honey, almond, spices, exotic fruit, and sometimes orange peel make for quite a charming bouquet on this wine.

Château Aydie is a good reference.

*Mellow wine contains between 12 and 45 grams of residual sugar per litre; this gives it a “sugary” feeling in the mouth. Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh has a sharp acidity that balances out the wine’s mellowness.
