2019 Fabien Jouves 'Amphore' Malbec 750ml
Region: Cahors, FRA
Fabien Jouves comes from an old farming background, but his approach to winemaking is anything but traditional. His growing methods have a real focus on biodynamic viticulture that takes into consideration, not just the 50-year-old vines, but the entire world around them; both flora and fauna.
Produced from a vineyard parcel of just one hectare, this cuvée, fermented in egg shaped tanks, has a good texture but is also very delicate, even in its youth. Unsurprisingly, this single varietal Malbec owes its name to its vinification and élevage in amphorae, with no sulphites added. This natural, living, terroir-driven wine is intensely fruity and impeccably clean.
