Malbec (Côt) is the king grape variety. Due to the location of the estate at the junction of the Quercy’s terroirs hillsides and those of Cahors, the plot selection was obvious to express the different facets of Malbec. Fabien JOUVES has been practicing Biodynamics at Mas del Périé since 2011 (Demeter, Biodyvin). It allowed him to produce more unique wines, reflections of their original terroirs and the emotions of the winemaker over the course of a year.
