Part of the original natural wine movement in France, Clos du Tue-Boeuf are making some of the Loire’s most interesting wines, with many native, and near-extinct varietals.

Brothers Thierry and Jean-Marie Puzelat have been working the family estate since the early 1990’s, the core of their holdings an organically farmed 10 ha estate; The Clos de Tue Bouf, in the Cheverny region of the Loire Valley.
Their vineyard is part of a balanced eco-system, isolated from other agriculture in the region, the old-vines of Tue-Boeuf (Some over 100 years-old), are interspersed amongst the natural greenery of the region.

This 3 pack contains 1 bottle of each wine:

2020 Clos de Tue Boeuf Vin Blanc
Loire, France

This is Loire Sauvignon that will make you purr with delight, it's chalky and mineral, and not overtly flamboyant. The nose is fruity with citrus and cut pineapple, alongside hints of aniseed. On the palate it is taut and exudes lemony aromas with a long, pleasing finish. Fresh AF, tightly wound and compact with lovely zip and directness. So drinkable, it’s refreshing, and satisfying, and a wine to remind us that Sauvignon blanc is so much more than the mono-stylistic wines that have over-saturated the market over the past few decades.

2015 Clos de Tue Boeuf Coteaux du Giennois
Loire, France

This blend of Gamay (mostly) and Pinot Noir is a wine with the typical acidity of natural wines. Ripe black fruit, a zest of substance, freshness, this is the kind of wine you want to open under the shade of the cherry tree in the garden or crush with a great cheese and charcuterie board.

2020 Clos de Tue Boeuf Vin Rouge
Loire, France

A Vin de France wine, produced exclusively from Gamay, and sourced from the vineyard belonging to a friend of the Puzelats in Touraine, that is organically farmed. The vines are quite young, ranging in age from 5-30 years-old planted on clay-calcareous soils. Such a slurpable easy going wine, lightly fragrant and everything you want in a fresher style Gamay. Juicy and lithe, with lovely tart black and red berries, it’s supple, bright, and really refreshing, a thirst-quenching kind of wine. This is a fan favourite if there ever was one.
