      ... we were now well adversed in the area, its food and its fine selection of wine, Floc and Armagnac. We had learned so much in such a short time and we had barely scratched the surface of this fascinating region.

      I feel many of us will return to taste these flavours again and to dig deeper into this wonderful area.

      Hats off to both Marie and Amanda for arranging and guiding us all through a great adventure.

      5. Floc Rosé
      Young Armagnac blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon juice also matured for 18 months in oak.

      Again, fabulous nose with intense Raspberry notes. Sweet and jammy on the palate. This would be fabulous with chocolate deserts as it has a distinct sweetness.

      And onto the Armagnac.

      1. Armagnac Vieille Réserve 15 ans 47%
      100% Ugni Blanc.

      3. 1979 - 42%
      Very interesting nose more like a wine with violets and mushroom. Spirity on the palate, very dry with hints of wood. Floriane said this was a Whisky lovers Armagnac and I could see what she meant with this reminiscent of a lowland malt.

      ... l'Esprit Passion Tannat (2012 I think) which were both from Domaine de Magnaut. There were two bottle of the Tannat which tasted remarkably different, we think the second was better and that the reason was this was from the wine store where the former had been kept in the warmth of the restaurant - interesting observation.
