A fantastic Sauvignon Blanc, from mostly young vines. Careful vineyard work and selection, coupled with natural vinification give this wine a level of aromatic complexity and depth that is a bit surprising, given it's unassuming name. This wine evolves quite a bit from citrus-driven early moments, to more subtle oxidative notes and quince aromas, and growing weight over course of a day or two. Yum!
Thierry and Jean-Marie Puzelat—brothers—are natural wine royalty. They are making some of the Loire’s most interesting wines and are at the heart of the natural wine movement. They began working in their family domaine in the 1990s, and at the heart of the operation is the 10 hectare family estate—the Clos du Tue-Boeuf—in the Cheverny appellation, which is supplemented by 6 hectares in the nearby Touraine appellation.
