Armagnac has captured JONATHAN RAY's attention. He reminds us that Armagnac is the oldest distilled spirit in France and draws a comparison with Cognac, pointing out that while four companies control almost all of Cognac's production, Armagnac is made by small artisan producers.
Ray's wine recommendations of the week include 2005 Alain Brumont, Gros Manseng/Sauvignon Blanc (3.99 each when you buy two; Majestic); 2005 Domaine de Tariquet (7.39; Les Caves de Pyrnes); and Floc de Gascogne Chteau de Millet (9.95; Yapp Bros).
