Domaine Tariquet is located in Gascony, in Southwest France. This estate of 1,125 hectares has been family-owned by the Grassa since 1912 (5 generations). As “Propriétaire-Récoltant” (wine grower), all the wines and Bas-Armagnacs are produced exclusively from the family’s vineyards and are estate bottled. 100 ha of vineyards are dedicated to the production of Bas-Armagnac.
Situated in the heart of Gascony, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees Mountains, Domaine Tariquet benefits from the mild influence of an oceanic climate. A strong temperature amplitude between summer days and nights produces ripe grapes with thick skins full of freshness and fruit. A mosaic of soils with clay-limestone and “boulbène”(silica, clay, sand) enhanced by ochre-colored sand known as “sables fauves”, deep and draining, perfect for white varietals.
An original savoir-faire renowned for the elaboration of white and rosé wines, as well as Bas-Armagnacs.
Domaine Tariquet uses a sustainable method of growing and only uses natural fertilizers. With our concerns about protecting the environment, we have been sustainably managing the vineyards for over 20 years. The estate is certified ISO 14001 and HVE (High Environment Value) as well as Vegan friendly.
Armagnac is Europe’s oldest eau-de-vie, over 700 years of history. High quality white wines are distilled. The ageing and the blending fulfill a style of elegant and delicate eaux-de-vie close to the original fruit. After fermentation, the wines are distilled at the estate in November and December, to produce the Bas-Armagnacs. The color of our Bas-Armagnacs comes uniquely from the ageing in barrels. The naturally light tint is due to the alchemy between the delicately toasted oak and the eaux-de-vie, thus truly respecting their natural color.
