Fabien Jouves has been shaking up Cahors with the wines he makes from his meticulously farmed vineyards in the Cahors region of Southwest France since 2006. His focus is making wines that are fun to drink and terroir driven. He’s not constrained by past traditions for the region of Cahors or the Malbec grape. The primary grape varietal of the region is Côt, otherwise known as Malbec, hence the playful name of the wine. This wine is neither like the familiar Malbecs or Argentina, nor is it akin to the bold, tannic, earthy wines traditional to the Cahors appellation. This wine is packed with crunchy juicy fruit and savory spice. Just damn yummy!
