Domaine Jean Bousquet is an organic winery in Topungato, in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina. Jean Bousquet was already a successful winemaker from Carcassonne in the south of France in 1990 when he decided to relocate to Mendoza, and went on an extensive search for the ideal vineyard location. In 1997, he finally established himself in Topungato, attracted by its high altitudes (for superior grape balance), climate and rich soils. The wines are available in a line of Premium Varietals (includes Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Torrontes and a Malbec/Cab rosé), as well as Reservas, Grande Reservas and a sweet, late harvest Malbec dessert wine.  Read less

What a nice surprise! I just found this wine choice today and I am thoroughly pleased. I only want to drink wine from organically grown or biodynamically grown grapes and this is one of the best I've come across. It's complex, smooth and lingers nicely in the mouth.

Just returned from having had the most delicious meal at Casino House Restaurant, nr Clonakilty/Kinsale west Cork, Ireland (a must go to restaurant) and had a fabulous bottle of Jean Bousquet Malbec Reserva 2007. A fab organic wine. Highly recommended. One to try. I have selected this one for the red at my 40th b'day dinner at Casino House in August!!!!

Tight, dark aromas of tar, leather and meat outmuscle the semi-herbal berry scents that come later. The palate is full, structured and grabby, with prune, black licorice and pepper flavors. A ripe, full-bodied wine with a chunky finish. Good Malbec with 15% Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah mixed in.

Briary berry aromas have a modest but welcome rooty, medicinal accent, white the palate is aggressive, ripe and offers the right framework for sweet berry and plum flavors. Pure and clean on the finish, with mocha and root beer notes. High-quality Malbec.

The 2007 Malbec Reserva is purple-colored with a brooding bouquet of violets and black fruits. Chunky and slightly rustic on the palate, the wine does not lack for fruit. Layered and rich but lacking complexity, this will satisfy the senses more than the intellect. Drink it over the next 5ndash;6 years.

Domaine Jean Bousquet has two notable values, a Malbec and a Chardonnay, listed in the Best Buy chart at the end of this report. A modest step up the price scale is the 2006 Malbec Reserva sourced from estate vineyards. It was aged for 8 months in French oak. Red violet in color, it has an enticing nose of cedar, leather, pencil lead, and black cherry. Medium-bodied, on the palate additional notes of mineral, blackberry, and chocolate emerge. Smooth textured, forward, and tasty, it can be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years. It is an outstanding value in Malbec.

Dark, with plum and fig notes, this has a brawny hint underneath, with briary tannins and notes of black licorice and fruitcake that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2008.

Good ruby-red. Aromas of currant, dark raspberry and mocha. Sweet, pure berry and mocha flavors are complicated by a crushed fruit character and a whiff of smoked meat. Densely packed but not a bit hard. Finishes with ripe, dusty tannins and lingering traces of bitter chocolate and tobacco.
