From these bunches at advanced maturity still garnished with grains full of sugar and pleasure comes a fine, elegant and distinctive wine
The character is exotic and greedy
The mouth is full and has a great freshness that energizes the whole
Moment of immediate happiness, a real balanced mellow leaving room for a final of fresh grapes...
Technical sheet · Domaine du Tariquet Premières Grives
“In Gascony, the onset of winter heralds the arrival of the first thrushes (premieres grives), eager for their share of the season's pickings. Harvested in late autumn, mature grapes packed with sweetness and pleasure produce an elegant wine, with fine typicity. Great fullness on the palate, with delicious tropical flavours, sustained by freshness. Balanced sweetness leads to fresh grapes on the finish - an instant delight.”
“The field of Tariquet covers an area of 900 hectares planted mostly chardonnay but Degros Manseng, Petit Manseng, Colombard and Chenin for white wines and Armagnac. The first thrush wine combines beautifully with the meolleux freshness. Its variety is Gros Manseng. It goes perfectly with foie gras or apricots pies appetizers.”
“The best known of all vintages of Domaine Tariquet. . . Thanks to the Grassa family, Gascony gained notoriety. This producer of Armagnac has for several years a range of white wines in the price / quality / awesome fun. The cuvée "Les Premières Grives" is very representative of the field. A slightly sweet wine and delicious exotic character. Balance between sugar and freshness is perfect. This softness of the Southwest is often copied and often inspires new generation of winemakers Gersois.”
