Domaine Bousquet - 2018
Deliciously drinkable modern Malbec. Aged for ten months in solely French oak (rather than a combination of American and French), which is generally accepted to deliver a more finesse and subtle flavouring and this works well in this wine which is fantastically intense and has flavours of black fruits, spice, caramel, chocolate, liquorice, fig and much more besides.
