An intense nose with notes of black fruit compote, blackberry, and hints of sweet spices... The palate is velvety and dense, with beautiful body, and a long finish. Yet another captivating expression of the Cahors appellation, signed Fabien Jouves!
Fabien Jouves represents the golden generation of Cahors. This young and dynamic vigneron settled in 2006 on the highest slopes of Cahors, where he took over his family’s estate of 20 hectares. Fabien, with his Prince Harry-like air about him, is the pretender to the throne in the Realm of Malbec, not to forget the winning-award for his mullet! His estate is certified organic by Ecocert and biodynamic by Demeter. His vinifications are natural, and his wines are from now on, most of the time without sulfur. Fabien earned himself a sterling reputation for his single-vineyard Cahors cuvées, which highlight his sensitivity and respect for each climat and terroir, but he has also become loved for his easy-drinking, thirst-quenching cuvées with such whimsical names as "You Fuck My Wine", "Tu Vin Plus Aux Soirées" etc... labels which have certainly helped generate buzz. But if some of his labels are laughable, his wines are very serious indeed.
To be shared between friends, an accessible, supple, fruity wine. A bit of spice and a lot of freshness on the palate. TVPAS: a go-to classic for thirsty oenophiles!
Probably the best compromise between fruit and structure, on notes of black fruits (blackberry and plum) warmed up by a hint of vanilla, cedar wood, cacao and long pepper. Palate: seriously rich and tannic, yet with great freshness on the finish!
One of our favorite cuvées during tasting, a super aromatic natural sparkling wine. Nose carried by notes of exotic fruits and citrus fruits, lovely floral bouquet. Lively bubbles and nice length. To be served chilled whenever it feels like summer.
Nose carried by notes of crushed strawberry, black berries, and soft spices. Palate in perfect harmony with the nose, it's silky, with lots of roundness, nice volume, fine and powdery tannins, mineral structure, incredibly elegant mouthfeel, very long finish with a hint of blackcurrant.
