Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
This yellow-pale-colored wine has fragrances of exotic fruits, passionfruit and pineapple. It allies balance, tension and nerviness. Fresh and keen, exotic fruits aromas are marked on the finish.
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 phylloxera is a little aphid able of killing the vines by attacking its roots. It devastated a major part of the European vines in the XIXth century.
Domain and appellation
Domaine du Tariquet
Domaine Tariquet, located in Gascony in the southwest of France, is a family property belonging to the Grassa family since 1912. As owner-grower, all the wines and Bas-Armagnacs of the estate are produced from grapes exclusively from the property's vines. Concerned about protecting the environment, the estate is ISO 14001 and HVE (High Environmental Value) certified. For more than twenty years, the Grassa family has managed the vineyard in sustainable cultivation. Terroir: The vineyard is based on clay-limestone soils, light boulbènes and tawny sands (ocher-colored sandy soils). Viticulture: Devastated by the phylloxera crisis, the vineyard exists today thanks to the considerable efforts of Hélène Artaud and Pierre Grassa, then to those of subsequent generations to preserve the estate through reasoned agriculture.
