Domaine Bousquet, Natural Origins Malbec (3L) – Great Value for the Quality

Domaine Bousquet, Natural Origins Malbec (3L), Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina, Wine Casual

Domai­ne Bous­quet, Natu­ral Ori­gins Mal­bec (3L), Tupun­ga­to, Uco Valley, Men­do­za, Argen­ti­na

Tas­ting Note: An orga­nic, boxed mal­bec that drinks like mal­bec from a bottle which is wel­co­me news for tho­se of you like me who tend to be skep­ti­cal of boxed wines.

Deep-inten­sity pur­ple in color, this wine has an aro­ma­tic, medium-plus-inten­sity nose of black­berry, red currant, black plum and kirsch with hints of sage brush and vio­let blos­som.

On the pala­te the dry, medium-plus-bodied mal­bec has medium-inten­sity, red-and-black-fruit fla­vors sug­ges­ted on the nose sup­por­ted by medium aci­dity and ripe, medium tan­nin.

The wine is mostly straight­for­ward with ripe fruit and a solid depth of fla­vor.

I’ve had more expen­si­ve bottled wines and wines that didn’t tas­te half as good as this.

Defi­ni­tely worth trying and pai­ring with gri­lled meats.

Great value for the qua­lity.

Box Note: Domai­ne Bou­quet com­bi­nes the know-how of French wine­ma­king with the excep­tio­nal cli­ma­te and terroir of Argen­ti­na. The vine­yard is loca­ted in the Andean foothills at 1,200 meters abo­ve sea level. The tem­pe­ra­tu­re ampli­tu­de helps to obtain ripe­ned gra­pes with exce­llent aci­dity. The gra­pes are hand­pic­ked and the vine­yard is cer­ti­fied orga­nic. Medium body with ripe fruit and a plea­sant finish. 3L Box = 4 Bottles.
