marchands de vin

A French sauce (the name of which means “wine merchants”) made from a heavily reduced mixture of full-bodied red wine, chopped shallots, cracked pepper and glace de viande. At the last minute, butter, lemon juice and minced parsley are whisked into the reduction. Marchands de vin, which is sometimes chilled until firm, is a popular accompaniment for grilled or roasted meats.
