Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Light yellow colour with white gold sheen. Straightforward nose with exotic fruits and citrus fruits. Notes of flint. Lively attack, tension, frankly acidic lengthening, character on exotic fruits, grapefruit. A frank and mineral finish, with a touch of sapidity.
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.
Domain and appellation
Located in Gascony in the South West of France, Domaine Tariquet is a family property owned by the Grassa family since 1912.
The philosophy of the Grassa family is to preserve, during vinification, the freshness and aromatic potential of the grapes harvested on the vineyards of the property. Concerned about environmental protection, the estate is ISO 14001 certified and HVE (High Environmental Value).
For more than twenty years, the Grassa family has managed the vineyard in sustainable farming. Terroir: The vineyard sits on clay-limestone, light boulbenes and tawny sand soils (sandy ground gives an ochre colour) Viticulture: Devastated by the phylloxera crisis, the vineyard, today, exists thanks to the considerable efforts of Hélène Artaud and Pierre Grassa, then to those generations that followed to preserve the estate through sustainable agriculture.
