GAIA, the Greek goddess of the Earth, has served as a muse for the Bousquet family since the winery was established in 1997, pioneering their way into the virgin lands of the elevated Gualtallary district of Tupungato. From the outset, Gaia wines have been crafted with the finesse of French winemaking, using exclusively organic fruits grown at the impressive altitude of 1,200 meters.

In these privileged lands, Argentina’s emblematic grape ripens under a resplendent sun and experiences extreme temperature variations between day and night. Our GAIA Malbec is made from the finest hand-harvested fruits, offering notes of sweet fruit derived from generous solar exposure and perfectly matured tannins.

Harvest: 2020

Grape: 100% Malbec.

Ageing: Aged for 8 to 10 months in French oak barrels.

Alcohol: 14.9 %

Tasting Notes: Its deep red color with purple hues is as profound as its flavor. To the nose, it unfolds a symphony of red and black fruits, spiced with delicate aromatic touches. On the palate, it manifests with intensity and fruity character, featuring well-defined tannins, a generous body, and a lingering finish, inviting another sip. This wine is a tribute to the rich soil that sees it born and raised.

Food pairing: Ideal with grilled meats with peppery sauces. 


About Domaine Bousquet...

Back in 1990 when Frenchman, Jean Bousquet, arrived on holiday in Argentina, there wasn’t a vine in sight in the Gualtallary Valley in Mendoza, as it was deemed to be too cold for viticulture. Nor was there any water above ground, electricity or roads but in Bousquet’s mind, with the region’s sunshine hours and cool nights, he had found the ideal terroir in which to produce high quality wines from organically grown grapes. Today, the vineyards cover 240 hectares, primarily on shallow alluvial soils of sand over limestone. Rainfall is very low but with abundant water from the Andes, a drip irrigation system ensures the vines get just enough. Harvest takes place by hand and after destemming, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel and cement tanks with the Premium Varietal range being also aged in tank and the Reserve and Gran Bousquet ranges in French oak barrels.
