Château du Tariquet, known for its Côtes de Gascogne wines and Bas-Armagnacs unveiled a XO Bas-Armagnac blend at the London International Wine Fair last month .

Made from a blend of 60 per cent Ugni-Blanc and Baco grape varieties, this Bas-Armagnac has been aged in oak in the Tariquet cellars with the youngest brandies in the blend being 15 years old.

Presented in a modern glass carafe, Chance XO is described as an easy drinking Armagnac with an intense bouquet of freshly baked bread, toast and underlying candied fruit. On the palate it is said to be fresh, supple and well-rounded, revealing a union of vanilla, oak and fruit.
