Vintage: 2021
Region: Occitanie, France
Viticulture: Biodynamic
Grape varieties: 100% Malbec

Fabien Jouves Haute Côt(e) de Fruit is a fresh and crunchy version of Malbec. Definitely not the over-oaked, high-alcohol versions seen elsewhere (looking at you Argentina!) Farmed biodynamically and fermented and aged for six months in stainless steel tanks, this almost reads like a mixed berry salad in the glass, all mulberry, cherry, and spiced plum. Liquorice, blackberry crumble, and saddle leather with supple tannins and tangy raspberry acidity. A touch of earth brings some much-needed levity to this full, fruit-driven & food-friendly red. Serve with a slight chill.

About Fabien Jouves

Fabien Jouves is from an old farming family in Causse and became a winemaker in 2006 when he created his first cuvée, “Mas del Périé”, on the highest slopes of Cahors.

Jouves’ estate, 21 hectares in the junction of Quercy and Cahors, was selected to highlight the many expressions of Côt. Reinforcing this is Fabien’s commitment to biodynamic viticulture that respects “life, plant, man, and the environment.” Following biodynamic agriculture adds strength to his terroir by supporting the whole environment from the vines to the animals.

The vinification is completely natural without any oenological inputs. His wines are then aged in concrete vats, barrels, or casks, according to their characteristics and personality.
