Vintage 2020

Malbec, Domaine Bousquet

Product Code: JB08ZZRC

Tasting Notes

Vibrant purple in colour. An aromatic, heady bouquet of raspberry, bitter chocolate and spice leads to a juicy and rich palate with layers of lush black cherry, mocha and mineral. Soft, elegant tannins and refreshing acidity round out and support the generous core of primary fruit. A classic example of Argentinian Malbec.

            [Notes2] => The estate consists of 240 hectares in Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley (Mendoza). The Malbec grapes for this wine come Tupungato, Alto Gualtallary on a soil of gravel and sand. The altitude, in the foothills of the Andes, is 1200 meters and this location provides the vineyards with a cool climate and constant fresh air. Rainfall averages only 200mm per year and so the vines are irrigated by a drop-by-drop system using Andean mountain run-off. The pH of the water is low resulting in higher acidity in the grapes as well as more colour. The desert-like climate has a huge 15° C day/night temperature differential. Farming is organic.

Argentina, there wasn’t a vine in sight in the Gualtallary Valley in Mendoza, as it was deemed to be too cold for viticulture. Nor was there any water above ground, electricity or roads but in Bousquet’s mind, with the region’s sunshine hours and cool nights, he had found the ideal terroir in which to produce high quality wines from organically grown grapes. Today, the 
vineyards cover 240 hectares, primarily on shallow alluvial soils of sand over limestone. Rainfall is very low but with abundant water from the Andes, a drip irrigation system ensures the vines get just enough. Harvest takes place by hand and after destemming, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and cement tanks with the Premium Varietal range being also aged in tank and the Reserve and Gran Bousquet ranges in French oak barrels.
