Chateau du Tariquet VSOP Bas-Armagnac tasting notes :-
Colour : A beautiful shade of amber.
Nose : A strong prune bouquet with a wealth of concentrated aromas. Also the suggestion of freshly baked bread and a touch of toast and gingerbread. Finally aeration reveals aromas of baking bread, rancio and candied fruit.
Palate : So smooth on the palate that there is only the flavour of fine oaky vanilla, with no trace of alcohol.
Finish : Good length with a hint of macerated stone fruit on the finish.
