Type: White Wine
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
The fruit for this wine is sourced from farmer friends in the Cher Valley (the Puzelat home turf in the Touraine); the vines average about 20 years old and are organically farmed, on clay soils with varying degrees of sand, gravel, flint and quartz. As with all Tue Boeuf wines, the Vin Blanc fruit is hand-harvested, whole-cluster-pressed, fermented spontaneously with natural yeasts in tank and not racked until bottling. It is aged in stainless steel tank only. The Vin Blanc is the only Tue Boeuf to be fined and very lightly sulfured before bottling.
The palate is ripe and round but balanced by firm acidity and mineral flavors framing the ripe white fruits. Long, juicy finish.
