Review: NV Domaine Bousquet Brut Rose
This nonvintage sparkler hails from Domaine Bousquet’s estate vineyards in Tupungato, Alto Gualtallary, Argentina — and is grown at 4000 feet of altitude. A blend of 75% pinot noir and 25% chardonnay, the wine is loaded with lemon and orange notes up top, moving from there into a gently floral character as it develops in the glass. Extremely acidic, particularly on the sometimes biting finish, there’s not a whole lot of nuance in this release, but that is well compensated for by its insanely low price.
