Domaine Bousquet Malbec Reserve, Tupungato, Uco Valley
"The Bousquet Residence!"
Tastes like: Blackcurrant. Raspberry. Cassis. Fig. Tobacco. Silky tannins.
This sophisticated, 100% organic Malbec is classier than one of Hyacinth Bucket's candlelit dinner parties. The critics can't get enough of it so bag yourself a bottle (or case) and send out your RSVPs.
The Bousquet family are 4th generation winemakers who moved from France to the Tupungato, Argentina in the 1990s and proudly grow all of their grapes organically.
Grapes for the reserve range are sourced their best plots (some of the highest altitude sites in the region) with low yields. Aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.

Due to an unforeseen Chest Infection requiring Antibiotics, I never got to taste any of the aforementioned wines - each bottle was consumed in full and no adverse comment was expressed
Awesome red! Loads of flavour.
Love this so much it’s become a staple part of my balanced diet. Red,white and occasional rośe. If you like it try the magnum exceptional value for money and a tweak on already brilliant quality .
Enjoys a period of decanting. Lovely upfront tannin quickly overtaken by a long smooth aftertaste. A pleasure to drink.
