Why does it deserve our mention? Because of their artisanal stone mill production method and their more than 150 years of history in the heart of Burgundy.  Grains of mustard are known to have been used by the Chinese, Greeks and Romans in antiquity.  But it was the Greeks and Romans who spread the use, first as medicine and then later in cooking.  Very few producers maintain, as is the case at Fallot, a stone mill to grind the grains of mustard, something that undoubtedly gives it a special flavor.  Maison Fallot is the last independent, family-owned mustard producer or moutadiere still existing.  It’s important to know that Dijon mustard is a recipe, not a Designation of Origin, so it can be made in any town in France, or in the world.  Only Beaune Mustard has a Designation of Origen.  Fallot’s Dijon mustard uses ingredients like mustard grains, water, vinegar, salt, sugar and spices and of course, 15% white wine.  Enjoy it with your favorite dish!
How should you eat or cook it? With meat, it’s also ideal with vinaigrettes and as an ingredient in many sauces. 
What wine should you drink with it? In this case, it’s better to drink beer, because of the vinegar.
How should you keep it? In a cool, dry place, and, once open, in the refrigerator.
