Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its intense straw yellow color offers a discreet nose on notes of acacia and pear in syrup. In the mouth this wine has a gourmand attack and perlante with a very nice sweetness, on the honey, the candied yellow fruits and the fig. Finale with light tension and finesse.
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.
Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.
Do you know ?
The phylloxéra is an aphid able to kill vines by attacking its roots. This puceron devastated most of the European vineyards in the 19th century.
Domain and appellation
Domaine du Tariquet
The hectic story of the Domaine du Tariquet was marked by 2 names. First, the “jeune Artaud,” bear exhibitor and expatriate, who partnered with his son to buy the domain. Then, Pierre Grassa, a former resistant who developed the domain with his wife Hélène Artaud.
- Terroir: The vineyard lays on clay-limestone and sand soils to produce bas-armagnacs, white wines and rosés.
- Viticulture: Ruined by the Phylloxéra crises, the vineyard thrives today thanks to Hélène Artaud and Pierre Grassa’s tremendous efforts, and also thanks to the following generations who keep preserving the domain through the implementation of sustainable agriculture.
- Vinification: The wine ages for 5 months in stainless steel tanks.
