      ... 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 ...

      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.

      We were taken around the site to view the courtyard, cloisters and the church along with the lodgings of the monks which is now where the art collection is presented. The exhibitions change regularly and we were able to see various works including some sculptures by Salvador Dalí and Rodin and some striking modern art mainly from a polish artist called ...

      2. 1988 - 43%
      Again, very dark colour. Softer again than the 1998 with more of a crème brulée nose and a spicy finish of cinnamon on the palate.

      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.

      ... means Thrushes - when the first arrive with the autumn the late harvest begins.

      Bright and golden. Cheesy nose, palate of pears with good acid balance.

      6. Dernières Grives 2012

      Petit Manseng. Vey late harvest just before the Thrushes get them! Produced in very small quantities.

      Deep golden colour, very honeyed nose with a hint of vanilla.

      And then followed by five Armagnacs (hic!)
