Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
The wines and Bas-Armagnacs of Domaine Tariquet, owned by the Grassa family since 1912, are produced exclusively with grapes from the estate's own vineyards. The vineyards have been cultivated in a sustainable manner for 30 years and have been awarded the HVE and ISO 14001 environmental certificates.
Domain and appellation
Domaine Tariquet, located in Gascony in south-west France, is a family estate owned by the Grassa family since 1912. As owner-grower, all the wines and Bas-Armagnacs of the estate are produced from grapes coming exclusively from the property's own vineyards. Concerned about the protection of the environment, the estate is certified ISO 14001 and HVE (High Environmental Value). For nearly thirty years, the Grassa family has been using sustainable farming methods for the vineyard.
Terroir : The vineyard is planted on clay-limestone soils, light boulbènes and tawny sands (ochre-coloured sandy soil).
Viticulture: Devastated by the phylloxera crisis, the vineyard exists today thanks to the considerable efforts of Hélène Artaud and Pierre Grassa, and then those of the following generations to preserve the estate through integrated farming.
