Domaine du Tariquet is located in the beautiful south-west of France and is considered a pioneer in its region when it comes to planting Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay vines. The first winery in Gascony to cultivate these varieties in the 1980s, Chenin and Marselan were added in the 1990s.
The Vidal Fleury Côtes du Rhône AOC is an extremely remarkable wine in many respects. It comes from one of the oldest and most renowned wineries in France.
