  2. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat and saute eschalot 2 minutes, until tender. Mix in remaining lemon juice, vinegar and 4 tablespoons wine. Simmer until reduced by at least 1/2. Stir in cream and milk. Season with dill, parsley, thyme, salt and white pepper. Cook and stir until thickened. Whisk in 3 tablespoons butter. Set aside and keep warm.
