Domaine Bousquet Reserve Pinot Noir
Beautiful, bright, ruby red Pinot Noir that has benchmark red cherry, red plum and smoky aromas and a ripe, soft red fruited palate. Made by a Frenchman in Argentina it has Old World class with New World generosity. It is both fermented and aged in French oak and this gives the wine real roundness and the structure that makes it such a good food wine.
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.
