Domaine Bousquet, Virgen Organic Malbec 2019, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: A malbec with an endearing, yeasty quality on the nose.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of black plum, raspberry puree, red currant, red cherry, crushed-dried violet blossom and bread dough.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied malbec has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin ultimately completing with a medium finish.
The wine has hints of creaminess running throughout the length of the taste and would ideally pair with red meats.
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. Virgen is the most pure expression from our terroir. With only natural occurring sulfites, Virgen is a well-balanced malbec with rich and pure fruit flavors. Tones of red and black fruit as raspberry and black currant make it ideal with red meat and pasta dishes.
