Domaine Bousquet Gran Cabernet Sauvignon

This is Domaine Bousquet’s line starring their best grapes from the “home” vineyard – the original vineyard planted by Jean Bousquet in the late 1990s. This was the terroir that caught Jean’s imagination because it had a rarity – sand. Sandy soil makes for elegant wines (a “must” for this Frenchman). Its low fertility gives desirable vine stress; it is permeable for good drainage and has no salinity issues, often a problem in arid areas. Grapes here are the last to be harvested; the extra hang time ensures heightened richness and body.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 12 months in French oak.

Tasting notes

Deep violet color. Pronounced red and black fruit aromas. Fig, raisin and black pepper with mineral notes. Full bodied palate with present tannins and long finish.
