Winemaking: Organic Pineau d'Aunis grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged in old wooden barrels. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural red wine with a light body and high acidity. Delicate red fruit and red apple skin flavours with a touch of the grape variety's signature pepper kick on the finish. We already love Pineau d'Aunis but once put in the hands of the Puzelats, it goes to a whole new level of finesse.
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.
