The Mas del Périé/Fabien Jouves estate is a 6th generation property located in the Causses plateau, on the highest slopes of the Cahors appellation. The vineyards sit atop the hills of Quercy at over 1,100 feet. The high elevation guarantees low nighttime temperatures, which partly explains the freshness and vivacity of the wines. Fabien Jouves assumed the winemaking duties in 2006 and quickly began converting to biodynamic viticulture. Opting for spontaneous fermentation, Fabien’s employs a non-interventionist vinification philosophy. Additionally, various vessels are used to age the wines: concrete tanks, barrels, large foudres, and amphorae depending on the wine’s personality in a given vintage. 

Notes from Thirst Merchants:

“A lip-smacking delight of a white blend from deep southern France. Meyer lemon meets ripe pear pulp after a bouquet of white flowers with a honeyed flair. Still bone-dry and with a zippy acid, this is an all-around beaut from Fabien Jouves.”
