How wonderful - a truffle that is healthy! And with a splash of Armagnac to give that festive feeling (this bit isn't healthy but it's very yummy and it comes from the Gers where Puyssentut is). We love these truffles so much that we've christened them 'Gersois Truffles' because not only do they contain Armagnac but they are made with chesnuts too, which the French love, and we've given them to all our neighbours for Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone!
