Domaine Bousquet Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
You'll find layers of refreshing redcurrant fruits, intertwined with smoky notes from light oak ageing. Acidity and tannins - important components in a well made wine - are perfectly balanced and the result is an enormously satisfying mouthful of wine. Just the sort of wine I could easily drink a glass or two of with an old fashioned ploughman's lunch.

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.
