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.
Then it was on to our next port of call for an Armagnac tasting - well it had been half a day since we had our last one!
