Fabien Jouves


Domaine Mas del Périé, Midi-Pyrénées

Domain Mas del Périé has belonged to the Jouves family for four generations and is now run by the young Fabien Jouves, who converted the vineyards to biodynamic farming as early as 2004. The estate is located in Trespoux Rassiels, where soils are known for their richness. What makes the Mas del Périé wines so special is the subtle way Fabien balances inner tannins, resulting in lively and fresh wines, which have been approved by the greatest wine critics and guides. 

"With biodynamics, there's much more tension, precision and salinity. You have to show your emotions, your personality in the wine." - Fabien Jouves
