Domaine du Tariquet
Tariquet – Tête de Cuvée Chardonnay 2011
Aged for twelve months in French oak barrels, this distinguished Chardonnay has an enduring elegance that is equalled only by its wealth of aromas. The bouquet is initially intense with undertones of ripened grapes, vanilla and stone fruit. This special vintage has unexpected depth and intensity that will surprise even the most seasoned palate.
Partial maturing in barrel gives power and finesse to this fruity Chardonnay. A subtle floral bouquet on the nose with hints of butter. Rich, rounded and fresh.
Refreshing, dry and fruity with magnificent intensity. Floral and citrus scents on the nose; fresh and crisp on the palate with a salty finish. A delightful wine with an exotic-feel.
Tariquet Les Derniers Grives
A sweet, elegant and well-rounded wine striking a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. The over-ripe grapes are picked before the thrushes (grives) arrive giving the wine its rich, powerful yet very fresh quality. The bouquet reveals scents of white truffle, vanilla and sweet spices. Produced in small quantities.
After 6 months in barrel, the 4 varieties are blended together and kept at low temperature for about a year. The wine displays mellow notes oak, vanilla, peach and exotic fruit. The 4 varieties join forces to give the wine character and complexity.
