Fabien Jouves makes the ultimate party wines, wines that are made to be shared!! Tu Vins Plus aux Soirees is a natural wine produced by Fabien Jouves, the winemaker at Mas Del Périé. Fabien comes from an old peasant family in Causse. A single son, he studied oenological and worked as a winemaker in Bordeaux. In 2006, he took over the reins of the family estate in Trespoux, whose production had until then been turned towards the cooperative. The “Mas del Périé” is thus created and benefits from a position of choice on the highest slopes of Cahors. Malbec (called Côt en Touraine) feels like a prince. Due to the location of the estate at the junction of the Quercy and Cahors hillsides, the plot selection was obvious to express the different facets of Malbec to which it offers a new breath.
The young artisan-winemaker (as he defines himself) does not do in the consensual, he has the common sense peasant pegged to the body and decides to let the terroir speak freely. Which leads him to drive his 20 hectares of vines in organic and biodynamic agriculture, for the respect of the life, the plant, the Man and his environment. The 2018 vintage comes from a blend of Malbec (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%). The vines are on average 25 years old and are planted on the soil in the clay-limestone subsoil. After manual harvesting, the vinification starts with a whole bunch maceration of 7 days. The wine is then aged for 6 months in concrete vats and barrels. It is not filtered before bottling. A zest of sulfur is added (about 20mg per litre).
Fabien Jouves Tu Vins Plus aux Soirees is a wine of thirst, but with the added character as a bonus!! Like his brother “You Fuck My Wine”, this has a rather more fruity & juicy side with a touch of succulent spicy.
