Fabien Jouves Les Agudes
Fabien Jouves’ family has a long history farming grapes in Cahors. The domaine is a 6th generation property and is located in Causses (literally meaning limestone plateaus), on the highest slopes of the Cahors appellation. His family’s 22 hectares sit atop the hills of Quercy at over 1,100 feet. The high elevation guarantees low nighttime temperatures, which partly explains the freshness and vivacity of the wines. Grapes for the Agudes are manually harvested from biodynamically farmed young (20-year-old) vineyards. A combination of direct-pressed grapes and whole clusters are softly pressed. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with native yeast in stainless steel vats and barrels. Les Agudes ages for 6 months in stainless steel vats, barrels, and casks before bottling. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. Complex and fresh natty white for all your fall meals!
