  • Place the red wine in a pan, bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute to burn off the alcohol.
  • Then add the stock, peppercorns and red wine vinegar and sugar simmer rapidly until you are left with about a quarter to one third of the original volume.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the double cream, warm through.
  • Re season well.
