About Clos du Tue-Boeuf
Very few natural & organic wines have the potential in them to last for many centuries. Clos du Tue Boeuf is one of those few rare wine brands. Started by the Puzelat family in the early 15th century, this was one of the most favoured wines of King Francis I of France during the Renaissance Era. Today, the Clos du Tue Boeuf is run by brothers Thierry and Jean-Marie Puzelat.
The grapes for the wines are grown in the 35-hectare vineyards located in the Loires area of Touraine, Cheverny, located in France. After they went separate ways to learn winemaking techniques from across the world, the brothers joined the family vineyard in the early 1990s. Ever since, they have made all efforts to make 100% natural and organic wines with as little intervention as possible.
The terroirs where the Puzelat family grows its grapes are rich in clay content and has a dominant presence of limestone, iron, etc. The vines are also planted at varying elevation levels. Thanks to all these, the fruits grown here are rich in flavour and character. While Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay and Pinot Noir are the major varietals grown in these vineyards, you will also be able to spot small lots of other varietals such as Chardonnay, Cot and Menu Pineau. The Puzelat brothers source some grapes such as Chenin Blanc and Pineau d’ Aunis from the nearby vineyards of their friends.
Though this wine label has been in existence for many centuries now, what’s quite interesting to note is that it has managed to maintain the same uniqueness and natural winemaking techniques to date. Therefore, it is not surprising to believe that Clos du Tue Boeuf is the torch-bearer of natural wines not only in the region of Touraine but in France as well.
