Domaine du Tariquet Sauvignon BlancIn addition to the Domaine du Tariquet Rosé that made such an interesting partner to Garlic Soup I received two further wines in the range that have recently been released under screw-cap. Ithier Bouchard, export manager for the company is quite adamant that screw caps are the future for Domaine du Tariquet wines, ensuring freshness and quality every time.



White Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: Domaine du Tariquet Sauvignon Blanc, 2006, VdP des Cotes de Gascogne, France.
Pale lemon colour and a 'pale' lemony aroma. More action on the palate with an edge of sherbet on the finish after a medium-bodied, lightly honeyed, lemony brst of flavour. Straw and a touch of minerality lead into orange rind complexity.
Scribblings Rating - 86/100 [3.25 out of 5]



White Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: Domaine du Tariquet Côté Tariquet, 2006, VdP des Cotes de Gascogne, France.

A 50-50 split between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. A tantalising aroma mixing floral touches with honey, citrus and pineapple. The flavours are similar with an up-front splash of pineapple, a hint of minerality and a little grapefruit. Red apple flavours abound on the finish. Alcohol 11.5%.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]




BACKGROUND TO THE GRASSA FAMILY
Maïté Dubuc-Grassa and her brother Yves Grassa (Winemaker of the year IWC 1987) have in their twenty years of activity become leading French wine makers: they grow 900 hectares (2224 acres) of vines (making them the largest independent vineyard in France) which produce 7 million bottles of wine to be sold in more than 45 countries around the world.

The Famille Grassa signature style relies on the winemaker capturing the first aromas of the grape, a process which involves meticulous care at every stage. Using state-of-the-art technology and facilities (Tariquet owns the largest pressing room in Europe), Yves Grassa has created a fine, unique and fruity style of wine that bears the Tariquet signature and corresponds perfectly to the taste of today's consumer."
