Crushable satisfying red

Malbec, Cahors, France 

The wines of Fabien Jouves are like hella catchy two-and-a-half-minute pop songs that you can’t stop won’t stop listening to, & Fabien’s Haut Côt(e) de Fruit is his most crushable, versatile banger yet. The cuvée name is a playful double-entendre riffing on the grape name Côt, a regional nickname for Malbec as well as esteemed Bourgogne appellation Haut. . .

The wines of Fabien Jouves are like hella catchy two-and-a-half-minute pop songs that you can’t stop won’t stop listening to, & Fabien’s Haut Côt(e) de Fruit is his most crushable, versatile banger yet. The cuvée name is a playful double-entendre riffing on the grape name Côt, a regional nickname for Malbec as well as esteemed Bourgogne appellation Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuit— point being, chichi Burgundy this wine proudly isn’t! HCdF does NOT feel the need to apologise for living its cutie juicy boi truth. Vinified from 25-year-old Côt vines grown across a handful of plots based on clay and limestone soils, the grapes are then destemmed and macerated for seven days and aged for six months. The result is a brambly fruit salad of red cherry, mulberry & plum underscored by a dash of chalky minerality. Bright red licorice like Nibs at a movie theatre, soft vanilla kick, blackberry panna cotta. Perfectly medium-bodied, youthful & twinkly-eyed, with velour tracksuit tannins and tangy raspberry seed acidity. As the name makes exceedingly clear, this is a fruit-driven wine, but it doesn’t skimp on the lingering leather, spice & earthy notes that round it out and prevent it from drinking too cloying or jammy. Serve with a light chill at a caszh summer bash; this wine adores burgers & BBQ chicken & smoky grilled veg.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive. Are you a licensee or producer looking to join our imports roster? Send us an email at hello@grapewitchimports.com
