Winegrower's portrait

FABIEN JOUVES - BIOtiful wines

In the village of Trespoux-Rassiels, Mas del Perié culminates Cahors vineyards from it height of 320m above sea level.

When Fabien Jouves arrived in the estate in 2006, this young winegrower intended to move the lines of the historical appellation of Cahors to express greshness and finesse with the purity of the fruit of the Malbec grape.

With ambition and tenacity, he began a long process of analysis of the soils, conversion to biodynamic faming, long ageings on lees in barrel and now amphora.

Today, Fabien Jouves is a winegrower who knows exactly his terroir and the whispers of his vineyard.

Always listening to his plot's cuvees, he has became one of the best references of the Cahors appellation.

Still passionated and outgoing, Fabien Jouves produces some recreational cuvees, more confidential, from old grapes that he wants to preserve. The pleasure is guaranteed !
