Wine maker notes
Made from organic grapes sourced mainly from vineyards in Tupungato (Uco Valley) at an altitude of 1200 meters (4000 feet) above sea level, one of the highest points in Mendoza. It is 100% un-oaked Chardonnay, the wine has been fermented in stainless tanks in contact with lees to give it a creamy feel to the wine, and then aged for 4 months in the bottle.

Food pairing
It is ideal to drink as an aperitif and with seafood and fish.

The Bousquet Family, who hail from the southern French city of Carcassonne, have a long history and prestigious wine making tradition. In the constant struggle to produce wines of a superior quality, Mr. Jean Bousquet was determined to find the best place to continue the family’s decades long tradition. In 1990 Mr. Bousquet first arrived in Mendoza to investigate the vineyards and wineries. Upon discovering the unique characteristics of the region, its soil, it’s high altitude, it’s terroir, Mr. Bousquet was convinced he had found the ideal location for his winery. In 1998, after buying a parcel of land, he moved from France to the foothills of The Andes. The vineyard is located in Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza at an altitude of 1200 meters (4,000 feet) above the sea level, making it one of the higher altitude vineyards of Mendoza and the world. The vineyards are blessed with cool nights and a near constant cool breeze, the idyllic conditions for ripe grapes and excellent wines. The main objective of Domaine Bousquet is to combine the European Elegance in winemaking style with the prefect cool climate and terroir of the Uco Valley in Argentina. The result is wines that are naturally elegant with incredible color, beautiful fruity driven character, good structure with velvety style and a perfect sugar/acid balance. Approachable young, the wines reward further aging. The wines continue to receive accolades from the International Wine Press.
