The Wine Recommendations
|Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc
Consider yourself warned, this wine from Jacques Broustet is a brett bomb, you know, that bacteria that can give wine overtones of a herd of sheep? So if you’re intolerant, this is not for you. If you can handle it in balance, check this out.

2013 Tu Vin Plus aux Soirees
|Cahors, Southwest, France
|Cabernet Franc, Malbec
There are a few people working naturally in Cahors, and thank the gods because the place has the stuffing of greatness. Fabien Jouves is one of them. Here we have the result of grapes from the lime and clay, fermented in whole cluster in open vats and voilà, a vin de soif with interest and soul. It’s a velvet beauty of sumptuousness, meat and olive and plumptuousness.
