Fabien Jouves "Tu Vin plus aux Soirees" 2017
There are two different kinds of wines made in this estate – the Vins de Soif (basically drinking wines) and AOC Cahors. They are made in a different manner (one without sulphur and without barrel ageing, the other traditionally made and with differing levels of oak). They are both quite wonderful. Those of you who have been following the story behind his other controversial wine (available in this very shop) will not be surprised by this label. It roughly translates to “You don’t come to my party anymore” The word “vien” replaced by “vin”. Funny anti-authority word play, great label and brilliant wine all in one, it does not get any better.
This is a delicious drinking wine, soft black cherry and brambly fruit and full with a refreshing dry finish. Slightly more tannins and structure compared to it’s brother.
