This golden yellow, oak-aged Chenin Blanc unveils a complex palate featuring lovely notes of quince, baked apple, hazelnut and beeswax, culminating in a saline, flinty finish.
Chenin Blanc so far south from its traditional Loire roots, is not easy to find. But planting this vineyard 20 years ago on 350m asl was a great move and the result is divine.
In 2006 a young and ambitious Fabien Jouves gets on his winemaking journey, taking the reins of the 12-hectare estate south of Cahors from his parents. The birth of Mas del Périé on the highest slopes of Cahors marked the genesis of Fabien’s venture into natural winemaking.
Embracing biodynamic principles and advocating for a complete absence of additives in both vineyards and cellars, Fabien’s commitment to freedom and independence shines through in every bottle.
The outcome is nothing short of amazing. Mas del Périé’s wines embody a sense of joy and peace, with a delicate touch that resonates with the soul.
Nature here is not an untamed wilderness but a harmonious, untouched sanctuary.
