Nom d`Oiseau 2019 - Fabien Jouves - Cahors, France 75cl
GRAPE: MALBEC (COT) TANNAT
BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
THE WINEMAKER: FABIEN JOUVES
THE WINEMAKER: MAS DEL PERIE / FABIEN JOUVES
The wines have two distinct characteristics. First they are as pure as can be, with a direct expression of the terroir and variety, holding focus and balance whilst still portraying the classic deep inky Cahors style. Second, these wines are drinkable. I know this sounds a little basic, but they have freshness, life and restraint. They will age, for sure, but to drink them now is no chore. How many Cahors can you say that of?
Fabien is obviously world famous for his Mas del Perie wines, super fresh terroir tuned wines from malbec grown on the high Quercy plateau, but as many of you will know, he also has his own side project producing wines which not only have the ultimate thirst quenching characters, but have a message to give. These wines are produced with limited cuvaison, no added SO2 and are typically Vin de Soif made for drinking in the year after harvest. This vintage, 2016, the range is a little reduced, but the favourites are all here.
