Domaine Bousquet Chardonnay half bottle
This vintage comes from renowned vintner Jean Bousquet, a practitioner of minimal intervention winemaking. From his high quality grapes to his idyllic location at 1,200 meters above sea level, to the fresh air and rocky soil of Mendoza, Argentina, conditions are perfect to make a natural, organic wine without the use of pesticides. The dry white is a popular offering at wine tastings, with a nose dominated by citrus and tropical fruits. Lime, peach, and apple present in the mouth, with just enough sweetness to balance out the acidity--giving it a clean, fresh finish.
Frenchman Jean Bousquet travelled thousands of miles to find his 'optimum' vineyard location. In Mendoza, Argentina he found a site with, in his words 'idyllic wine-growing precipitation and temperatures, mild during the day and cool at night… situated at a good altitude (1,200 metres above sea level), with fresh air, few funguses, and very permeable sandy and rocky soils… these great attributes give the grapes the possibility to attain an optimum maturation without the risk of rotting and without having to use fungicides'. These perfect conditions combined with knowledge passed down through three winemaking generations makes for wines of exceptional quality.
