      ... and followed with a final crustard.

      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.

      What a great few days we had spent in Gers. It seemed ages since we arrived in the room with the alembic running at ...

      The final Armagnac was the 1974 which there was very little left of - we were lucky as this had an incredible nose of ...

      ... 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.
