Winemaking: Organic Sauvignon 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: Top notch Sauvignon Blanc from a small 1 hectare plot in the village of Pouillé just east of Tours. This is a complex white wine with flavours of citrus, pear, herbs and minerals. Fragrant and aromatic so best served with food. A special cuvée that will age very well for years to come.
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.
