Fabien Jouves Tu Vin Plus Aux Soirée, Malbec & Cabernet Franc Blend
Cahors, France 2019 (750 ml)
From 25 year old vines, and certified Demeter Biodynamic, this offering comes from Fabien Jouves, a young winemaker who converted his family's domain in Cahors--first to organic and then to biodynamic--after having a 'coming to' moment in a Paris bar à vin while he was in college studying medicine. Jouves’ estate, 21 hectares in the junction of Quercy and Cahors, was selected to highlight the many expressions of Côt (Cahors Malbec). He aims to make fresh wine with plenty of minerality along with a backbone of acidity and fruit to balance drinkability. This sets him apart in Cahors where Côt is often expressed as full bodied and tannic.
