This week I am going to be reviewing a few wines from Domaine du Tariquet. They focus on white wines (9 white wines and 1 rose to be exact) and the estate is located the village of Ercé, which lies at the foot of the Pyrenees in France. All of the wines they produce are priced very reasonably and, of the four I tasted, I did not experience one bad bottle!

Now the Fun Part – Tasting the Wine
Aromas of pineapple and honeydew are abundant in this bright gold wine. There are crisp tastes of lemon, pear, vanilla, and spice with a healthy dose of acidity. An easy sipper with a refreshing finish!
My Wine Rating – B
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with halibut, goat cheese, or veggie tacos.
