      Wines were good - a 2013 Chiroulet La Côte d'Heux from Famille Fezas (Gros Manseng) and a 2013 Cuvée des Filles d'Embidoure, a Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend.

      The service was a little stretched but the food was good and a fine time was had.

And to finish off the meal we had the same selection of Daroze Armagnac as we had for the initial tasting on the first night!  Ii managed to taste two before I had to admit it was time to go to bed! What a great way to close out our last evening in Gers with fine food, wine, Armagnac and the best of ...
