The Fin Gras du Mézenc beef

The Fin Gras du Mézenc beef

An exceptional produce to discover at Aux Lyonnais until June!

Xavier Boireau, Chef at Aux Lyonnais, suggests the Fin Gras du Mézenc beef, Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) (Certified Label of Origin), regional exception rarely suggested on the Parisian restaurants’ menu.

A regional exception:  Fin Gras du Mézenc beef is raised on hay and grass from the Mézenc region (between the Haute-Loire and Ardèche) and during the last winter is fed with natural mountain hay.

A distinctive flavour: The very fragrant Mézenc hay releases its aromatic notes into the meat, making it extremely flavourful. The meat stands out from those issued from a more classic production by a more pronounced taste, a richer colour and superior tenderness. Gabriel Gauthier, Ambassador of taste and Clermont Ferrand butcher, selects an exceptional Fin Gras for the Aux Lyonnais chef. A great lover of Fin Gras, he actively participates in promoting this AOC and compares «the heifers to young girls in Sunday dress.»

The Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) (Certified Label of Origin) signifies a close link between the product, region and human expertise. AOC guarantees that the regional origin of your beef bestows taste and organoleptic qualities that could not exist in any other region. The Fin Gras, 3rd French beef to be awarded the prestigious Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (since 2006 and PDO since may 2013), is distinguished by its unique flavour.
