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.

If we’re calling dibs on who gets first-born privileges, Armagnac edges out Cognac. The Spirit is the oldest type of Brandy in France, with documented distillation dating back to the early 15th century.
The best way to enjoy a Calvados or Cognac is in a balloon-shaped snifter. Armagnac? Try a Champagne flute or a tulip-style glass instead.
To delve even deeper with Cognac and Armagnac, they live about 180 miles apart, so they're practically neighbours. Cognac is mostly made from one sort of grape, while Armagnac loves variety. The most interesting difference is their PR: Armagnac is one of the oldest Spirits on the planet and it was rarely exported. Cognac, on the other hand, was the export blockbuster with good marketing. It even had Napoleon III as its poster boy, who made sure Cognac was sold in every medieval supermarket.
