Supply, smoky, red berry fruits sing out in this top-class Pinot.

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, this Burgundy in style Pinot Noir combines Old World class with New World generosity. It’s both fermented and aged in French oak, which gives this excellent red real roundness and the structure that makes it such a good food wine too.

  • Brian Elliott, wine writer & judge: “Surprisingly dark but with the clarity organic wines so often present, it exhibits fragrant raspberry and plum flavours embellished by lively acidity and well measured tannin. Lovers of pinot noir with a savoury foundation will relish this wine and the nutty, cola and clove elements it also contains.” (2021 vintage)

  • London On The Inside, Father’s Day Gift Guide 2023: “This Pinot Noir from Argentine organic producer Domaine Bousquet has lots of cherry and plum notes, making it a great food pairing wine, and it’s best served lightly chilled.” (2019 vintage)

The Bousquet family originally arrived from Carcassonne, in the South of France and can proudly claim to have four generations of experience in the winemaking tradition. Their first foray to Mendoza was in 1990 with the aim of understanding the unique nature of the climate, soils and topography of this imposing, impressive upland region but it was not until 1997 that the family made their first purchase of land and re-located from France. This first 110 hectare parcel is located in the Gualtallary valley in Tupungato, Mendoza at an altitude of 1200 metres (4,000 feet), making it one of the higher altitude vineyards in Mendoza and the world. The cool nights and a near constant breeze emphasise the idyllic climatic/terroir conditions that these vines enjoy. In total, the Bousquet estate comprises 240 hectares of vines, all in Tupungato. Another unique characteristic of the region is the low amount of rainfall (approximately 20cm a year). This allows Domaine Bousquet to control the amount of water given to the grapes via a drip irrigation system. This same water is also bottled and sold locally as one of Argentina’s most popular bottled waters - which demonstrates just how pure and clean it is. Soils, in the main, are sandy with excellent drainage. Grapes are harvested by hand. Grown in such ideal conditions, it allows the fruit to attain an optimum maturity without having to use pesticides or any other chemical products. Only natural ferttilizers such as compost are used. Domaine Bousquet are able, therefore, to produce high quality, healthy organically grown grapes which in turn become high quality organic wines. A pure, natural expression of the Tupungato region. To improve the land's biodiversity is a key Bousquet aim. By nourishing the land and treating it with respect, the vines will give back in turn its finest fruit. With roots that penetrate deep into the soil absorbing trace minerals, the vines yield up a fruit that is a pure, authentic expression of its origins. As in the vineyards, so too in the cellar - respecting the delicacy of the fruit with gentle handling is the guiding principle in the cellar. Meticulous care and sensitivity throughout the winemaking ensures that the natural flavours express themselves to the full once poured from the bottle to the glass.

    Pretty full bodied for a Pinot. I’m not complaining!
