An expert's opinion

Domaine Bousquet; a very French sounding name, yet we find ourselves in Mendoza, Argentina, in the very special terroir of Tupungato. Argentina is, above all, the country for Malbec, which succeeds here in a way that it simply can't elsewhere. This Reserve cuvee is a prime example; velvety, spicy and fruity with enough freshness to be considered with a variety of foods. To cap it all off, it comes from one of the most beautiful organic estates on the slopes of the Andes mountains!

Jean-Michel Deluc. Head Sommelier of Petit Ballon.
The estate

Domaine Bousquet

Domaine Bousquet is situated at high altitudes, in the Tupungato district of Mendoza, Argentina. The exceptional levels of sunshine, combined with the snow-melt from the Andes mountains allows for top quality organic viticulture, and the grapes benefit from both French and Argentinian influences. The results, unsurprisingly, are delicious!
