Domaine Bousquet Malbec Reserve, Tupungato, Uco Valley
"The Bousquet Residence!"
Tastes like: Blackcurrant. Raspberry. Cassis. Fig. Tabacco. 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.

"Very pure, bright and fragrant on the nose, showing violet flowers and cassis, as well as blueberries. The palate has a seemless, smooth and fresh feel with integral fruit. Silky finish."
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.
A great recommendation from chilled and tanning will definitely purchase again in the future. Went down well with cheese after Xmas dinner.
