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.

Côtes de Gascogne, South-West France.

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.

Petit Manseng and other late-harvest regional grape varieties.
