Aged in wood for at least ten years, revealing a brandy at the height of its powers, and full of character. Baco and Ugni Blanc grape varieties are typical of the region of Bas Armagnac which produce brandies that age well. Chateau du Tariquet Tres Vieil X.O., is aged for between ten and twelve years in charred oak casks before bottling. This ageing in casks imparts the toasted flavours so typical of this style of Armagnac. It is the most ancient and honoured wine spirit of France. During the XVIthe century, it was sold in pharmacies as 'medicine'. Since 1683 the Chateau du Tariquet and its vineyards have produced one of the greatest Armagnacs of the region.
