Mas Del Perie/ Fabien Jouves "You F**k my Wine?!" 2018
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. Apparently the Cahors AOC people told Fabien that he must remove the Jurancon Noir from his Cahors wine – they wanted him to pull it up. He loves the grape (for very good reason), and so bottled it by itself to stick his fingers up at the authorities. You F**k My Wine is a Vins de Soif.
Brilliant, in our opinion. Macerated cherries with crushed stones underneath. A really good wine this. I’m not sure how this is going to look on the shelves though!
