A fresh insight into a well-known variety that gains in a new range of flavors under the clement Gascony skies. A familiar bouquet of fine, intense floral notes with mineral nuances, followed by a dominant sensation of ripe grapes. Good intensity leading into an abundance of finesse and freshness. A truly delicious and pleasurable wine.
Domaine Tariquet is located in Eauze, in the heart of Gascony in the South-West of France. The estate has been owned by the Grassa family since 1912. It has been a historical producer of Armagnac since 1683. The estate breaks new ground in 1982: the fourth generation, Maïté and her brother Yves, creates the Classic, a refreshing and crisp white wine made from Ugni blanc which was then
only used for Armagnacs. After several years, Colombard is added to the Ugni blanc. The wine is then awarded, in 1987, as Wine of the Year in
London. Yves Grassa is designated “White Winemaker of the Year” by the International Wine Challenge, in London.
