Domaine Bousquet Reserve Chardonnay 2012
Whilst moving storage warehouse locations recently, we have unearthed some cases Argentinian Reserve Chardonnay from the 2012 vintage. We've blown off all the dust and the good news is its still tasting fresh, lush and substantial, with a subtle creamy oak influence. Even better we're offering it at a silly price!

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.
