About This Wine

A Vin de France wine, produced exclusively from Gamay, and sourced from the vineyard being to a friend of the Puzelat brothers 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, light 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 slaking kind of wine.

The wine is fermented whole bunch, allowing the carbonic process to happen naturally, and this is clear to see in the results. The brightness and primary up front juicy fruit character are the hallmarks of this style. Just such an enjoyable light red that exemplifies Glou Glou wines.

About Clos du Tue-Boeuf

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.

Their range of wines is threefold; from the original clos of 5 ha in the commune of Les Montils, a separate parcel of 3+ hectares in Monthou-Sur-Bievre, and fruit purchased from organic growers mostly in the Cher Valley.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
