Given Jordi’s small production, this cuvée was created from a blend of other cuvées – Taillelauque, Soula, etc... Together, they create an easy drinking wine that leaves a no less strong impression, between red fruit and animal notes. A huge wine!
Jordi Perez, a young Catalonian, left his job at the town hall of Auch to pursue a degree in viticulture and oenology at Blanquefort in 2010. Over the following five years he would partake in wide diversity of internships: Grand Crus of Bordeaux such as Beychevelle, then large cooperatives in Saint-Chinian, Fitou, and also small estates like Perreou in Côtes de Gascogne... Finally, in March 2015, Jordi Perez took over the mythic estate of Alain Castex, Casot des Mailloles. Alain still works with Pur Jus thanks to his vine parcel Le Cabanon, which he held onto to keep busy during retirement! His entire 5 ha of terroir in Banyuls had become too difficult to manage physically: heat, steep slopes, parcels impossible to work with machines... The handover thus went smoothly between the two men, who share a common approach and vision for the estate. And the result doesn't disappoint, this is as delicious and ultra-natural a juice as ever! Good luck Jordi!
