Tasting Notes

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The Vin Blanc is the starting point for Tue-Boeuf's whites. The fruit is sourced from farmer friends in the Cher Valley; the vines average about 20 years old and are organically farmed, on clay soils with varying degrees of sand, gravel, flint and quartz. As for all Tue Boeuf wines, the Vin Blanc fruit is hand-harvested, whole-cluster-pressed, fermented spontaneously with natural yeasts in tank and not racked until bottling. It is aged in stainless steel tank only. This wine is always a beauty, sensually fresh, tight, clear and compact with lovely zippy and direct appeal. Wonderfully refreshing, satisfying and incredibly drinkable. - Importer Note



This is an estate that has created major waves in France over the past 10 years. They are on every blackboard wine list in every important wine bar in Paris and their wines, despite the affordable prices, are strictly allocated.

Two things define the Puzelat brothers' wines : the diversity of their cuvées, and their tenacious work with nearly-extinct grape varieties that were common in the Loire not so long ago, but were put aside by the AOC for reasons having more to do with commercial simplification than quality and terroir.

Clos de Tue-Bœuf is run by two brothers, Jean-Marie and Thierry Puzelat, who tend their 10-hectare family estate in Les Montils (in the Cheverny AOC) and rent 6 hectares in a village nearby, in the Touraine AOC. The region, near the hunting grounds of Sologne, has always used a wide variety of grapes. The brothers were lucky: their father had always worked Clos du Tue Bœuf with a very limited range of organic products and so the soils are alive; he also had never machine-harvested his vineyards or used industrial yeasts. The resultant wines are vibrant, translucent, and explosively flavourful and in many ways taste like they are home-made in that they have an honesty, truthfulness and wholesomeness in their flavours.

Thierry would have liked to expand the Clos du Tue Bœuf, by renting or buying more vineyards but his brother Jean-Marie, single and in his late forties, did not want to add more vineyard and cellar work to his already heavy schedule. So Thierry started a separate business with a friend, set up a winery in the village of Les Montils, and sourced excellent vineyards and growers to buy their grapes.

True to his conviction that good wine is made from healthy grapes, he has selected grape growers who farm their plots organically and bio-dynamic for some and so he now offers a range of local wines, both from Touraine and Cheverny. They are naturally every bit as good and interesting as those of Clos de Tue Boeuf. - Importer Note
