2018 Fabien Jouves Tu Vin Plus Aux Soirees Cabernet Franc
Fabien Jouves doesn’t just rock the classic style of Cahors. This one is half Cabernet Franc, a grape illegal here, thus the “Vin de France” lack of appellation & no vintage on the label. The name is a pun on “Tu Vien Plus Aux Soirees” meaning “You’re no longer welcome at this party” a reference to Cab Franc’s historic presence here, now ignored by the authorities.
This is a delicious drinking wine, supple and spicy, soft black cherry, blackberry, pomegranate and full with a refreshing dry finish.
A great drinker on its own, but also suitable with sautéed mushroom and collard wraps, or dark meat turkey and roast pork.
