From the bottle:

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 1200 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.

Bright yellow color with tro­pi­cal aro­mas, citrus and lime notes. It has a very balan­ced and struc­tu­red pala­te with a long and per­sis­tent finish. This wine goes well with sea­food, chee­se and pas­ta dis­hes with cream sau­ces.

13.5% Alcohol

The 2017 Domai­ne Bous­quet Reser­ve Char­don­nay opens with a bit shy but plea­sing aro­ma of citrus, green apple, melon and a little vani­lla. Taking a sip reveals a clean and tasty wine full of nice citrus fruit fla­vors plus a little tro­pi­cal fruit and just a touch of crea­mi­ness and spi­ce. This is a mostly fruity Char­don­nay but you do get a bit of the oak influen­ce as well from the half of the wine that spent time in barrel. Just a hint of vani­lla cream leads into the very long, tart, satisf­ying, lip-smac­king finish.
