Fabien Jouves is from an old farming family in Causse and became a winemaker in 2006, creating Mas del Périé on the highest slopes of Cahors.
In that region, Malbec (cot) is the king of grape varietals. Located at the junction between Quercy and Cahors, parcel selection was an obvious choice to maximize the different aspects of Malbec. This expression of terroir is reinforced by a biodynamic agriculture that respects life, plants, humans and their environment.
The whole vinification process occurs naturally, without any additives. The wine is then aged until maturity, either in concrete tanks, barrels or large wooden vats (foudres), depending on the wine's personality.
