Atamisque ‘Catalpa’ Assemblage is one of Argentina’s finest Bordeaux blends. It is dominated by 50% Cabernet Franc with the remainder coming from Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Franc gives the wine fantastic freshness and graphite aromas which work beautifully with the richer, darker flavours from the Malbec. Lovely spice notes balance perfectly with the mocha and coffee notes that follow the smooth red marmalade fruit. It is an extravagant wine that is plump and utterly delicious.

Bodegas Atamisque is located in the district of San Jose in Tupungato in Argentina’s Uco Valley. The winery, which also encompasses a golf course, guest accommodation, a tasty restaurant and a trout farm, is owned by Frenchman John Du Monceau and his wife Chantal, whose grandfather was a winemaker in Burgundy. The couple’s French elegance shines through in the wines which all have great purity, finesse and fruit character, especially the Serbal range which is unoaked. Malbec is the obvious star but the Cabernet Franc is one of the finest examples we’ve tasted. They have no desire to be a big winery and believe in quality over volume which is why they only use fruit from their own estate owned vineyards.
