Following our visit to Argentina, we could not resist adding this reserve level Merlot (85% Merlot, 15% Malbec). With 10 months in French oak, it's sweet red fruits are complemented by a touch of black pepper and there's coffee and vanilla notes too, all bound together with soft rounded tannins that are such a hallmark of all 'Bousquet' wines

Domaine Bousquet

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.
