When it comes to Value for Money, Domaine Dusseau is hard to beat. Especially the Reserve series (Barrel Aged) gives great beautiful wines for a very pleasant price.

Located in the South of France, Domaine Dusseau has vineyards spread over different areas in the Pays D'Oc, each with its own climate. Most of the grapes are destined for bulk wines, but a limited part, and then the best fruit, is destined for own bottling where quality is the starting point.

Due to the large area of its own vineyards, Domaine Dusseau has the opportunity to always select the best grapes from the best plots for the wines under its own label.

The vineyards of Domaine Dusseau around Limoux are located in three climatically distinct regions:
- West of Limoux the 'Terroir Océanique' with wines where the acids dominate.
- Northeast the 'Terroir Méditerranéen' with full-bodied wines.
- To the south, the 'Terroir Haute Vallée' where the wines clearly have more minerality.

Due to this variation of terroirs, a constant quality can be pursued by adjusting the ratio in each blend to the specificity of the harvest year. In fresh years the percentage of 'Méditerranéen' can be increased and in warm years more freshness can be brought to the wine by increasing the proportion of 'Océanique'.

The grapes for the Dusseau Reserve Barrel Aged Malbec are pressed in a pneumatic press after picking, the vinification takes place in steel vats under full temperature control and contact with the skins. This Réserve Malbec is aged in French oak for 6 months. This Reserve malbec has a beautiful deep red color with purple hues. Spicy in the nose with notes of dark red fruit such as plums, cherries and berries. In the mouth ripe and balanced dark red fruit with a soft pepper in the drink, complemented by a pleasant aftertaste.
