Le Florida - the final meal

... 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.

... length.

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.

Prunes on the nose. Firm ...

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.

The taste of Barbaste - truffles for lunch

Our venu for lunch was the Moulin des Saveurs in Barbaste. This restaurant is situated in the remains of a 13th Century fortified mill (why a mill required fortification I cannot find!). Next to the mill is a lovely weir and a 12th Century arched bridge which made for some pretty photos. The restaurant area is inside caves carved out of the local rock which at one time used to contain a steam engine for the bakery I believe. So, when in a fine ...
