Winemaking: Organic Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged in old wooden barrels. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Elegant and precise Chenin Blanc with a nice complexity of apple, pear, citrus and mineral flavours alongside a subtle note of oyster shell. Nicely textured with a long finish. Great value!
Notes on the Winemaker: Thierry Puzelat is a local legend in his region of Touraine in the Loire Valley and his domain Clos du Tue-Boeuf has been organic since 1996. His daughters Zoe and Louise are now taking over the reigns. The blend of grapes in each cuvée often differs year to year as do the wines themselves and that's just how we like it.
