Winemaking: Organic Menu Pineau grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeast after 48 hours maceration. Aged in old wooden barrels. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.

This Wine: Thierry Puzelat has dedicated his time to protecting and making single varietal wines from the Menu Pineau grape. Some of the grapes that went into this wine come from a vineyard planted in 1937. This is a medium bodied white with a lovely complexity of citrus fruit, fresh herbs and clean minerals. The name means 'Goat's Hay'.

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.
