Duck breast with clementines

Duck breast with clementines recipe

It’s Léonie’s favorite meat, I also like this very generous duck, but we don’t agree on the cooking, so in principle I eat the middle of the duck breast and Léonie the ends, always a little more cooked. . For this duck breast with clementines, I still had fruits of incredible quality, clementines arriving directly from Israel (it’s not next door !!!); they just add a little acidity to this duck breast with clementines; I accompanied it with a white rice. I really like the duck breasts from the southwest of France, always quite generous with a barely pink meat, in any case, ideal for this recipe of duck breast with clementines; I still had a base of late harvest Riesling to make my sauce. I had kept a glass to accompany my meat.

Partnership with Château Lacouture in Gauriac in Gironde

A thought to all those connected from France or abroad in love with French cuisine and its wines, here is a great opportunity for you to buy a quality wine, without any risk, to accompany my duck breast recipe with clementines. I selected this Bordeaux Cuvée Carpe Diem 2012 Bordeaux wine from Château Lacouture after tasting it, I loved it.
Côte de bourg 2012 Carpe Diem
This Côte de Bourg on the palate is a dense wine, with a supple attack and a silky but deep substance, nice round tannins, a wine with a deep ruby color and purplish reflections in its youth. The nose is complex, intense and clean, with primary notes of red and black fruits. On the palate, it is a dense wine with a supple attack with some nice notes of round tannins.
