Domaine Bousquet’s "Gaia" line presents its 2018 White Blend, an unusual and modern blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc. Golden yellow in color with peach and lemon on the nose, the first taste is buttery and mellow. Further sips reveal ripe, robust characters of apple, melon, and citrus, with some minerality. Aged for 6 months in a French oak barrel, this wine boasts delicate complexities of honey, praline, and roasted nuts. Creamy, balanced, and medium-bodied, its finish is clean and persistent.
Domaine Bousquet’s vintage blends are unique, responding to that year’s harvests. Lucky for us, this brings a new taste adventure every year. Pair 2018’s dry, easy-drinking offer with salty Spanish cuisine. After a long week at work, serve the Gaia 2018 White Blend with tempting tapas, such as pimiento de padrón, plant-based patatas bravas, and stuffed olives.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the story behind Domaine Bousquet’s "Gaia" line?
After an Argentinian vacation in 1990, the Bousquet family moved from Carcassonne in the South of France to Argentina’s Mendoza region. Here, in the breathtaking Uco Valley, they found an untouched yet ideal terroir for producing high-quality organic wines. Sunny, high altitude, with acidic sandy soils, this environment produced high-quality grapes and elegant wines.
Domaine Bousquet’s "Gaia" range is named after the ancestral mother of the Earth in Greek mythology. And it’s no wonder! Their grapes are 100% organic and they are dedicated to sustainable farming that improves the biodiversity of its vineyards. Renowned for organic wines produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, the Domaine Bousquet family believes that a healthy vineyard delivers a better grape.
