Fluffy Chix Talk Special Ingredients: Taylor Dry Sauterne

Taylor Sauterne elevates roasted chicken,
turkey and Cornish game hens.

Ask anyone who knows about wines and they will remark, “There is no such thing as a dry sauterne. Sauterne by definition is a sweet dessert wine.”

Well, “they” may be right, but those folks have clearly never talked to Taylor about this little point of wine factoids. Because Taylor makes the wine we’ve used to cook most of our chicken and assundry poultry and the Fluffy Chix Cook family has been using it for many years.

Mama used to call it dry sauterne and she would differentiate with the caution, “Now don’t bring home any of that sweet stuff! Ask the liquor store for the dry sauterne made by Taylor.” In fact, she never just said Taylor Sauterne. It was always, "Taylor Dry Sauterne".

And if there’s one thing I know, Mama made THE best roasted chickens, turkeys and Cornish game hens on the planet. The entire planet.

As it turns out, Sauternes wines, which are sweet dessert wines are much higher in carbs and have about 7 or so grams per fluid ounce. They taste delicious with desserts as their category suggests, but they are mucho dinero – whooooo doggey! Expensive! And not something you use for cooking a bird or savory dish. So don’t get confused. Taylor apparently used sauterne as a generic type of label when naming their wine many years ago. It’s actually categorized as a dry white wine, similar to a cheap white Bordeaux.

According to the people at About Atkins Diet, Dr. Atkins Alcohol Guide claims there are 0.5g of Carbs in about 4 ounces of dry white wine or about 0.13g per fluid ounce. According to MasterCook, sauterne has 0.23g of carbs in 1 fluid ounce. I’m gonna choose to go with MasterCook on this one. I can’t find any information on the Taylor website.

Where Do You Buy It?
Taylor (Dry) Sauterne is located next to the screw top jug wines – you know, the cheapa** wines we’ve all been known to drink long before 2Buck Chuck, that Johnny-come-lately cropped up.

Taylor (Dry) Sauterne is usually found on the bottom shelf. And you may need to request it from your liquor store manager.

We don’t refrigerate it after opening. I’ve kept it as long as 6 months in the pantry without it tasting “off” when cooked in a dish. A splash in your stock, or in your basting butter/olive oil mixture adds depth of flavor to any roasting meat – especially poultry. And is a budget bargain!

If you can’t find Taylor Sauterne, substitute Dry Vermouth or dry white wine such as sauvignon blanc, fume blanc, chardonnay, white Bordeaux, or pinot grigio. You could even get away with a cheap Chablis or Riesling if you prefer although the carb count would be higher.

SusieT’s Notes:
Don’t get me wrong. This wine is a superstar! It’s budget friendly. It’s low carb friendly. And it tastes divine when cooked correctly in all sorts of dishes! But do not think you can sit down and have a little nip of this wine while you’re cooking. You will gak. And curse me. Mostly gak.

The End.

The advantage for using this wine is because it DOES have a unique flavor in dishes that is different from other white wines or dry vermouth. It’s a taste all on its own. And it’s also shelf stable and doesn’t require refrigeration. And it keeps longer than a regular bottle of white wine you would uncork.

So it doesn’t take up refrigerator real estate. Costs about $0.24/fluid ounce – CHEAP! And will last you about 6 months or 10-12 recipes, whichever comes first. And, it won’t break the carb bank either!
