Mas del Perie Amphore 16
One of our finds from our South West trip in late 2011. Fabien Jouves is a young experimental winemaker responsible for our You F*** my wine. This is his best Cahors—made traditionally with 100% malbec grown on red limestone, under biodynamic principles, and aged in a single 500 litre new oak cask.
Though young now, we think this is going to develop beautifully. Ripe red berry fruit and chocolate on the nose, and a lush, silky palate with gorgeously smooth tannin, rich oak flavours and a sumptuously long finish. Beautiful.
