Tasting Notes from the Curator
Rillettes refers to a special kind of preparation of meat that makes in similar to a pâté. In this case, duck meat, often coming from legs or wings, are dry-brined and braised in a special stock then shredded and flavored further with spices. The result is a delicious meat spread that can work easily with bread and a variety of hors d’oeuvres.
The Castaing Duck Rillettes is made exclusively from duck meat in confit, without any pork or preservatives.
Duck Rillettes are ready to eat and can be spread over toasted country style bread or a baguette. This can be complemented with onion jam or crunchy pickles on the side. You may also use this in your sandwiches or serves as part of the charcuterie board.
This makes a great pairing partner with Cabernet Franc or a good Pinot Noir.
