Tu Vin Plus Aux Soirées Cahors Fabien Jouves
Soft, supple & spicy. Blackberry and pomegranate tones.
Fabien Jouves doesn’t just rock the classic style of Cahors. He also makes a few “vins de soif” (quaffers.) This one is half Cabernet Franc, a grape illegal here, thus the “Vin de France” lack of appellation & no vintage on the label. The name is a pun on “Tu Vien Plus Aux Soirees” meaning “You’re no longer welcome at this party” a reference to Cab Franc’s historic presence here, now ignored by the authorities. A Wine Authorities exclusive!
Serving Suggestion: A great drinker on its own, but also suitable with sautéed mushroom and collard wraps, or dark meat turkey and roast pork.
Grapes: biodynamic 50% Cabernet Franc, 50% Malbec
