Domaine Bousquet - 2017
A four month-long maceration ensures that the maximum amount of flavour has been extracted from the skins of the Malbec grapes. Good natural acidity is an essential factor in quality sweet wines and there’s just the right amount here to keep in check the layers of plum fruits, chocolate, coffee, caramel, spice and marmalade flavours you’ll find here. A delicious way to end dinner, serve it at no more than 15°c.
88 Points, Decanter Magazine, ‘Dense, rich, sweet and utterly heartwarming. The fortification is well judged – at 17.5% it’s not as fiery as many Ports. Something very different to put on your table alongside all kind of chocolate puds or cheese.‘ Peter Richards MW, Jan 2018 (2017 vintage)
