Organic – high altitude vineyards – terroir-driven wines

Domaine Bousquet

The Bousquet family hail from the city of Carcassonne, in the South of France and are 4th generation winemakers. In 1990, they began to explore the idea of leaving behind their vineyard in France to travel and explore opportunities further afield. On one particular trip to Argentina, they fell in love with Mendoza, intrigued by combination of soil variation, altitude and terroir on offer.

In 1997, they took the decision to permanently relocate, buying a parcel of land in the Gualtallary Valley in Tupungato, in the foothills of the Andes. The site is defined by its altitude, with the majority of the vines at around 1,200 metres!

The key objective of the Bousquet family was to unite their tradition of European wine with these unique conditions and produce wines that speak of their terroirs.

The resulting range spans a number of different grape varieties yet maintains the Bousquet hallmarks throughout – vibrant colour, delicious organically-produced fruit, good structure with ripe tannins and perfect acid balance.

Cherry scented magic

Lovely summer drinking Malbec this one, full bodied yet light, soft tannins yet lots of "bite" and an elegant black cherry back taste that is very moreish and as well as hitting the spot perfectly with a lightly barbecued butterflied leg of lamb it also surprised along with homemade cheesecake with strawberry and maple syrup dressing. Versatility 5 stars A must buy for summer foodies!
