Domaine Bousquet’s Gaia range delivers its bold, flavorful 2018 Red Blend. Every year, grape yields vary in character, so this vineyard responds by producing blends that reflect each unique harvest. 2018’s offer is ruby red in color with dark fruits, menthol, and cedar on the nose. Savory, smooth, and medium-bodied, it boasts deep, intense flavors of plum, blackberries, cherries, and ginger, with kicks of peppery top notes.
It has a silky, syrupy mouthfeel, and its 10 months in French oak lends it earthy, leathery characters. It finishes slowly, with notes of licorice and violet. Save this red for a hearty dinner full of rich flavors. Pair with spaghetti al Pomodoro topped with chili flakes and smoked vegan cheese. Continue the night with another glass and an indulgent serving of plant-based dark chocolate mousse.
- Blend of 50% Malbec, 45% Syrah, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
- Contains Sulfites.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Domaine Bousquet committed to making organic, environmentally-friendly wines?
Domaine Bousquet’s wines hail from 100% organic family-owned vineyards in the Mendoza region of Argentina, in the foothills of the Andes. In these high altitudes, the weather is hot and sunny, and the soil sandy and acidic. The fruit-forward, full-bodied wines this environment produces have led to great success for the vineyard. Domaine Bousquet is dedicated to organic, sustainable farming that improves biodiversity, as they believe that a healthy vineyard delivers a better grape.
Organically grown grapes deliver a lower yield with an intensified flavor concentration that expresses the character and trace minerals of the local terroir. Today, Domaine Bousquet is renowned for producing environmentally-friendly wines which are also considered some of Mendoza’s finest and most elegant offers.
