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.

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.
