As it is widely sold, the Bordeaux Bouchon is easy to find. Bakeries, wine cellars and even some hotels, restaurants and delicatessens sell them. The Bordeaux Bouchon is also renowned internationally and can be found in Belgium, Italy and Switzerland, as well as the United Kingdom, United States and even Japan!
The Bouchon. Whether its used to stopper a bottle or eaten, we automatically think of this region, and especially of Bordeaux. A sweet introduced in 1976 and patented in 1983, the Bordeaux Bouchon successfully established itself and took centre stage from then on beside products that aren’t to be missed as you stroll along the port of the moon. A subtle and ingenious combination of grapes which are filled with almond paste and then macerated in ‘la Fine’ (local grape brandy); a pancake pastry cigarette wraps around the whole thing to make the final product.
