Loo­king for a per­fect pair of wines to take along to your next pic­nic? Look no furt­her than Domai­ne Bou­quet’s Sau­vig­non Blanc and Rose wines from the latest vin­ta­ge. This Argen­ti­ne duo are made from orga­ni­cally grown gra­pes, in vine­yards situa­ted wit­hin the high alti­tu­des of Mendoza’s Uco Valley. Pro­du­ced by the Bous­quet-Al Ame­ri family, the winery has made wines for the past 15 years.

First esta­blis­hed by Jean Bous­quet, Anne Bous­quet took over in 2011, joi­ned by her hus­band Labid Al Ame­ri. The hus­band and wife team brought in con­sul­ting wine­ma­ker Paul Hobbs to impro­ve their viti­cul­tu­ral prac­ti­ces in 2015 and are pre­sently wor­king on their newest plan­ting pro­ject, which fea­tu­res Gre­na­che and Caber­net Franc.

Howe­ver, their ove­rar­ching goal is simply sta­ted by Anne, “We just want to make the finest wines pos­si­ble and sell them at pri­ces peo­ple can afford.” What more could you want?

Tas­ting Notes

Domai­ne Bous­quet Sau­vig­non Blanc 2019, Tupun­ga­to Uco Valley, Men­do­za, Argen­ti­na, $13.00
A pro­noun­ced nose of tro­pi­cal fruit, citrus and pineap­ple, with a dry pala­te of fresh fruit and a slight her­bal note. It is easy to drink (per­haps a bit, too easy? 😊), and very refres­hing with long length.

Domai­ne Bous­quet Rosé 2019, Tupun­ga­to Uco Valley, Men­do­za, Argen­ti­na, $13.00
A blend of 45% Mal­bec, 45% Caber­net Sau­vig­non, 5% Sau­vig­non Blanc and 5% Pinot Gris, this rosé is pale sal­mon in color. It is dry on the pala­te, with ripe rasp­be­rries, che­rries and a hint of herbs, with medium aci­dity, medium body and long length.
