A beautiful Bas-Armagnac aged beyond years with a fruity palate.

Grapes had been growing in the fields of Tariquet for hundreds of years. The region was decimated by the epic Phylloxera blight, but a few hectares of viable vines had survived the disease. Jean-Poerre Artaud and his father purchased the estate in 1912. The family ran the château — planting and tending the vines through two world wars. For decades they sold their grapes on the wholesale market and bottled a portion into Wines and Armagnacs for themselves, family, and friends. In 1972 they formalized their family business into a company for the production of estate Bas-Armagnac.

If Domaine Tariquet Bas-Armagnac XO were a Cognac it would be designated "Hors d’âge" — beyond age. The youngest Spirit in the bottle has aged fifteen years in oak which is far more than is required for the XO designation. Domaine Tariquet Bas-Armagnac XO sits at the top of the Château’s lineup. The Spirit is made from 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Baco grapes — all estate grown on-site. The delicate combination delivers a supple palate and bracing aroma of baked bread.


Smartass Corner:
Bas-Armagnac is one of the three regions in France where Armagnac can be legally produced. The other two are Armagnac-Ténarèze and Haut-Armagnac.
