The orange wine in Fabien‘s selection is the Skin-Contact Maceration and it’s delicious! It is a bright orange with a slight fizz on the tip of the tongue. Fruity and herbal with notes of peach, orange peel and a touch of cinnamon. It is also a bit creamy.

Fabien Jouves

Wine-making at its finest

Fabien Jouves founded his winery ‘Mas del Périé’ in 2006 and he has been farming biodynamically since 2011. The vineyards stretch from the high slopes of Cahors to the hills of Quercy bringing out different characteristics to his wines. The star of the winery is the grape variety Malbec, the selection of Jouve’s Malbecs is in-fact very wide! Every Malbec is different depending on the soil or the altitude or the vinification. Try them all from his elegant line‘Vins de Terroir’, presented with the chic white labels . If you feel like something funny and super drinkable try the other line of wines: ‘Vins de Soif’, you’ll recognise them by the joyful labels.
