To serve:
Fifteen years of breeding introduce the second maturity of the whites of the Tariquet. 
Served at room temperature or slightly warm in the hands exalts its aromatic richness.
Characters:
The power of character and the blooming complexity of the crazy white.
Tasting notes : 
Folle Blanche, 15 years old
A bright dress with mahogany reflections. 
An intense and complex nose of candied orange, rancio, honey, and Madagascar pepper. 
The gourmet amplitude of the attack and the density in the mouth carry a power without aggressiveness in the intense rise of spices. 
The brilliance of rancio unites all in a long and sweet finish of dried fruit (pineapple, apple, grape).

Le Tariquet has been the cradle of an entire family since 1912. First of all, the home of Hélène and Pierre Grassa, who began the tradition with their love of fine Armagnac. Then, the home of their children Maïté and Yves, both fervent winemakers, who have now been joined by Yves’ sons, Armin and Rémy, the third generation of winegrowers in the family. Together they manage the Tariquet estate, which has always remained an independent and, now more than ever, family-owned company. They run the property with an eye on the future and have built a business that is well placed to meet market demand. With close to 900 hectares of land, they produce Tariquet white wines and Bas-Armagnac brandies that have won international acclaim. Tariquet were the first winemakers in France to apply the rules of modern winemaking ( No oxidation, temperatures, special yeast…) being taught in France universities of oenology, just before and after the 2nd world war. Most students, sons of vignerons learned but never really applied it, since back home the fathers would insist, with a slap, in continuing with the centuries old methods. Tariquet opened the ways, at first despised by most, then grudgingly admired for their, fresh clean fruity wines. Years later the new world would follow with their successful New World Wines.With such vision Tariquet would also be excellent at Armagnacs, concentrating with foresight on the vine varietal Folle Blanche, which before the Phylloxera crisis, represented 90% of cognac and Armagnac production and was famous for fast ageing, preserving freshness of floral and fruity aromas. But post phylloxera Folle Blanche was difficult rotting by 25% to 50%. Tariquet must be admired to have persisted to be today the main exponent of brilliant Folle Blanche Armagnacs
