Clos du Tue Bœuf

The two brothers Jean-Marie and Thierry Puzelat maintain their 10-hectare family estate in Les Montils (part of the AOC of Cheverny). In addition, they also maintain 6 hectares in a nearby village, to produce AOC Touraine and Vin De France wines. A wide variety of grapes have always been used in the region, near the hunting grounds of Sologne. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Puzelats father replanted his own vineyards with a wide variety of grape varieties, leaving his sons today with grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Fié Gris, Menu Pineau, Pinot Noir. , Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt can work.

Jean-Marie was helped by his younger brother Thierry in the early 1990s to convert their vineyards from conventional to organic viticulture. When the AOC Cheverny was created in 1993, some varieties were banned from the blends, and the brothers began an annual battle to get their wines accepted under the new appellation. When a wine is rejected, it is sold under a Vin de Pays or Vin de France label; know their customers and trust their work and methods so quality is never questioned.

The brothers can really be considered pioneers within the (natural) wine world, and by comparison there are few winemakers who have been working in such a pure way for so long. The nice thing is that, in addition to beautiful cuvées from grapes from a few vineyards, the Puzelats also make energetic and lively table wines, which are hardly matched by others in the region in terms of quality.
