Floc de Gascogne - Château de Millet
This Floc de Gascogne from the Dèche family at Château de Millet hails from red grapes and has a deep brick pink colour and palate of sweet red fruit.
This judicious blend of Bas Armagnac and red grape juice is not unlike a Pineau de Charentes. Floc de Gascogne is principally deployed as a pre-prandial aperitif and foie gras accompaniment. Serve chilled.

Domaine de Millet (La Famille Dèche)
The Dèche family, whose considerable vine holdings lie just above Eauze in the Midi-Pyrenées, have resided at Château de Millet for over five generations. Today they make a range of Côtes de Gascogne wines on their 50-hectare estate, as well as Floc de Gascogne and Armagnac. Until the late 1980s, the Dèche family were predominantly producers of Bas Armagnac but, as this market diminished, the forward-thinking Francis Dèche began to diversify, planting Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Chardonnay along with Ugni Blanc to make good, dry, still wines for immediate consumption.
