About the Domaine: 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. In addition to his family’s holdings, he purchased two other pieces of land and his property totals over 30 hectares.
