Own Vineyards in Tupungato, Alto Gualtallary. By the foothills of the Andes at 4000 ft. altitude. Vineyards located in high areas have a lower temperature, allowing a better development of quality white grapes. Gravel and sand Soil.
Domaine Bousquet’s premium varietal series comprises a blend of estate and purchased fruit from the Uco Valley. The grapes benefit from major diurnal temperature swings, achieving exuberant ripeness while retaining the juiciness that invites a second glass. The wines are vinified with a French sensibility. The wines are un-oaked – an on-trend sensibility of little or no oak to let the fruit shine through and make the wines extremely food-friendly.
100% Unoaked Chardonnay, fermented in stainless steel in contact with lees.
Awards & Reviews
- 2012 Vintage 88 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar ‘Full yellow-gold colour. Apricot, butter and exotic oak on the nose, accented by citrus nuances. Offers good flavour intensity without excess weight, with sound acidity giving shape to the stone fruit flavours. Finishes with good texture and length.’
