Tariquet Classic

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.

About the Winery
Domaine du Tariquet is owned and managed by Yves Grassa. The estate was originally used for the production of fine Armagnac. In the late 1980s, Yves decided to move into the production of unfortified wine. He invested hugely in what are still considered to be “state of the art” facilities. Many of his contemporaries thought him to be completely crazy but his vision proved timely, as it coincided with a major increase in the price of Muscadet which at the time was one of the best-selling inexpensive wines in the UK. Yves’ Cotes de Gascogne wines managed to fill the gap left by Muscadet, and as the wines were not nearly as dry they also were able to compete against the invaders from the New World.
