Red Wine /// Malbec, Grenache // Cahors / France
What a label! Not even the only space invaders inspired design that we have on the sight (see Invasion of Taste here). This is made by the wildman of Cahors Fabien Jouves. Despite his wildly labelled wines, he is a softly spoken and thoughtful young winemaker. His main label deals in ultra-pure and traditional Cahors wine made from Malbec, but he makes a line of vibrant blends using grapes that are not permitted in the Cahors appellation laws (Malbec only). These wines are released as Vin de France (table wine) to allow him more freedom.....and to put curse words on the label at times!
This is one of my favourite that he has ever released. Lighter in colour, really vibrant and buzzy - just good fun to drink! Absolutely clean and pure. Tastes like the love child of Northern Californian Pinot and Bojo Fleurie. Smashable. STSWine
