We started with a very tasty salad of lettuce and duck gesiers with a fromage de chèvre 'pakora'. Then a choice of terrine maison or tarte aux fromage de chèvre. For main course we all had the tender young goat in a mustard sauce. Then a couple of goats' cheese and for dessert either a chocolate sponge or a strawberry one. The only disappointing course here is the dessert as the rest of the meal was very flavoursome as always.
This 2007 Côt changed character quite considerably over the course of the meal. Initially tasted on its own it was very much in the line of 2007 with edgy fruit, quite marked tannins – a character of Côt – and light to medium weight. The terrine and the goat smoothed out the wine out. Then with the goats' cheese the Côt became much richer and more mouthfilling.
