The big red brother came soon after which smelled of toffee apples, which are one of my favourite foods, and given a little time, was lovely and heavy. Served with a duo of lamb, it spelled the end of Summer for me, and about time too.
Even better was the Chateau de Triniac 2007, which was perfect just poured and with a selection of cheeses which were devoured with a second glass. I could have had a third but dessert were on the way….. a trio of vanilla crepe, cinnamon meringues and a mini chocolate coulant were offered with Cazes Grenat, Ambre and a Tuile. I whipped of the neck tag of the Ambre – so much more discreet than taking out my phone to take a picture of the label hoping I will come across it again! This time at least I know where to go to get it.
