2019 Domaine Bousquet 'Gaia' Red Blend
The story of Domaine Bouquet begins with 3rd generation French winemaker Jean Bousquet. Searching for new lands to continue his family’s legacy, he arrived in Argentina in 1990. He found the remote and arid terrain of Mendoza’s Gualtallary district, the ideal location in which to nurture organically-grown vines.
Situated at over 4,000 feet above sea level, the vineyards benefit from a cool climate that extends the ripening period, allowing grapes to develop complex character while maintaining all-important acidity. Using sustainable vineyard practices and 100% organic hand-harvested grapes, Jean’s wines radiate polished French decadence while showcasing the distinct characteristics of Gualtallary’s terroir.
Today, the winery continues to make high-end selections of unmatched concentration and sophistication that have caught the attention of critics and wine lovers worldwide.
Named for the Greek Goddess of Earth, ‘Gaia’ is a blend of Organic estate-grown grapes that showcases inviting aromas of black fruit, dark plum, violet, and pepper that lead into refined layers of spiced blue fruit and a strong and polished finish.
“Blackcurrant, herb, black-peppercorn and smoked-meat aromas. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a flavorful, savory finish. From organically grown grapes. Vegan.” – 92 Points, James Suckling
