      ... 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 ...

      A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Tannat.

      Odd nose which I couldn't quite place. Light on the palate with high acidity. Quite short with some greenness in the fruit.

      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 company!

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.
