The Wine: Tu Vin Plus aux Soirees 2017
Red natural wine from Cahors, France, made from biodynamic grapes. Tu Vin Plus aux Soirees is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Malbec vinified by talented winemaker Fabien Jouves. Fabien makes this wine naturally, without any additives, aging it in concrete tanks, barrels or large wooden vats.
The Producer: Mas del Perie' (Fabien Jouves)
Fabien Jouves comes from an old peasant family of the Causse (Massif Central). There the Malbec (cot) is the king of grape varieties. Thanks to the location of the vineyard at the junction of the Quercy and Cahors terroirs, the plot was obviously selected to express the different aspects of the Malbec. These aspects are reinforced by biodynamic viticulture which respects, life, plant, man and his environment.
The vinification (wine-making) in the wine cellar is made naturally, without oenological inputs, and the process of the wine until its maturity, in concrete vats, barrels, and casks according to its personality.
