MALBEC RESERVE, DOMAINE BOUSQUET, MENDOZA, ARGENTINA

A few words
ABOUT THIS WINE
A rich and full-bodied Malbec with intense aromas of well-ripe dark fruits and black plum as well as hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel, liquorice, black pepper and fig. Subtle undertones of sweet spices, toast and vanilla from oak ageing. Well-rounded, ripe and velvety tannins.

should i keep it?
This wine has enough concentrated fruit and structure (tan- nins, alcohol, acidity) to age well over at least 4-5 years. However it is produced in a fruit-forward, velvety style typical of many New World wines and does not require additional bottle ageing. That’s the reason that we recom- mend you pop the cork and enjoy it now!
serving temperature
16-17°C. Do not hesitate to chill it a little if the wine has not been stored in a cool cellar. If served too hot, alcohol will stand out and the fruit flavours might taste jammy. If served too cold, aromas will fade and the tannins will taste harsher.
Why we have
SELECTED THIS WINE
When it comes to Malbec, Argentina – and Mendoza in particular – rule supreme. Far from the rustic, big, full-bodied and rich reds that Malbec had long been associated with in Southern France, Mendoza Malbecs have concentrated flavours of ripe dark fruit
together with a plush, velvety texture and perfectly-rounded tannins. That’s exactly what you will get with this organic Malbec Reserve produced by Domaine Bousquet, a winery established by a French family who settled in Argentina about 20 years ago.
