HIGHLIGHTS of Wine Tours in the
ARMAGNAC
FRANCE

Armagnac, the region, is famed for its douceur de vivre ("sweetness of life"): its food being home to foie gras and Armagnac brandy. So let's take a journey of indulgences

Armagnac welcome

ARMAGNAC - THE ULTIMATE INDULGENCE?

Take a quiet evening after a delightful dinner, and fine aged Bas Armagnac - perfection!

ARMAGNAC COCKTAILS

Armagnac makes the perfect cocktail and can be served in so many ways. Eau de Vie blanche is great in any vodka cocktail recipes, while Armagnac can be substituted for Cognac or Brandy. Try this for a long drink on a summer evening.

FLAMBE DISHES

Flambé adds another dimension to all desserts and tarts and for the perfect flavours use an aged Armagnac over any fruits and flambé.
A dish of Flambé Bananas with Armagnac gently simmering to reduce to the perfect sauce. Great on pancakes with ice cream.

Crepes and Floc de Gascogne

To be honest I love Floc de Gascogne, and will drink it for lunch, in the afternoon, pre-dinner, with dessert, with cheese and even with coffee. A perfect match would be that shown - Crepes stuffed with Armagnac Flambe Apples and Cream.

Foie gras with Armagnac, Eau de Vie blanche , Floc de Gascogne

Armagnac and Foie Gras are a great match. The better and more focused the Foie Gras dish, the more higher the quality of the Armagnac. For a luncheon Foie Gras dish try drinking Floc and especially if it is not too strong flavour in the dish - the balance is important for your pleasure and enjoyment.
