30 in Gaillac

Today i turn 30 in Gaillac France. It’s pissing rain right now, and we’re about to go taste wine. Life is pretty good, except i miss my wife terribly (i hope the feeling is mutual).

If you’re ever in Gaillac may i suggest eating at Restaurant Lou Cantoun? They have a young talented chef, a killer wine list with good regional selections and natural stuff from around France. We had a bottle of Mauzac Pet Nature from Plageoles. It reminded me of a vouvray that took a turn somewhere along the way and did its own thing.

They also have a noisy cat that sits on the bar by the front door. Always a plus in my book.
