Malbec’s cooler-climate French sister.
For those not in the know, Côt = Malbec, they’re just grown in two different places. The Fabien Jouves VDF Rogue Haut Côt(e) de Fruit is like dipping into a carton of ripe blackberries, coated in milky chocolate. Serve chilled, or don’t – this wine is versatile as all get out and goes with pretty much any occasion.
- Fabien Jouves comes from a farming family in Causse and became a winemaker in 2006 when he created his first cuvée, “Mas del Périé.”
- His property highlights all the expressions of Côt, and the vines are biodynamically farmed.
- The vinification is natural, without any oenological outputs.
- Porch rocking chairs.
- Blustery days.
- BLT sandwiches.
