Domaine Bousquet, Reserve Chardonnay 2018, Tupungato Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: A chardonnay that expresses the green-fruit notes of a chardonnay paired with yummy, tropical-fruit flavors.
Medium-to-deep-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of green apple, fuji pear, starfruit, guava, lemon zest and kiwi.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
The wine is somewhat creamy in texture while maintaining a bright character throughout the entire length of the taste.
A good-value chardonnay for the price point as Argentinean chardonnays often are.
Bottle Note: Domaine Bousquet combines the know-how of French winemaking with Argentina’s exceptional climate and terroir. The vineyard is located at the foothills of the Andes at 1,200 m.a.s.l. Its thermal amplitude contributes to obtaining fully ripened grapes with an excellent acidity. The grapes are hand-picked and the vineyard is certified organic. Bright yellow color with tropical aromas, citrus and lime notes. It has a very balanced and structured palate with a long and persistent finish. This wine goes well with seafood, cheese and pasta dishes with cream sauces.
