CLOS DU TUE-BOEUF

Red Wine

Clos du Tue-Bœuf, Cheverny Rouge 'La Caillère' 2020

Place: Loire, France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Vibe: Natural, lighter

Pinot Noir planted on argilo-silex soils – clay over limestone, classic. Full of hard rocks. Hard work for vine roots. Whole bunch ferment in massive oak tanks, it's semi-carbonic in nature to begin with, before the juice is pressed off to finish ferment. Complexity dialled right in here. Red fruits, undergrowth, earth, spice. Everything you'd want allied with incredible verve. ABV: 13%

Regular price £32.65

Taxes included

I can remember trying these wines for the first time a few years ago and not really understanding them. Weird region, funny horse thing on the label, but came from an amazing importer so it was kind of a sure thing. Here I am a few years later and I can't get enough of the stuff. Clos du Tue-Bœuf is one of the most important natural Domaines in the Loire Valley, which makes them one of the most important in France, and therefore the world. Certified organic since '96, the Puzelat family have inspired myriad other producers to head down the minimal intervention route. The wines have gained in finesse and character over the years. Grapes are harvested by hand, no additives are used during vinification, a tiny dose of SO2 is added at bottling if needed. Fermentations with wild yeasts are long, aging is primarily in used barrique or tronconic wooden vats. So much personality here, iconic drinking.
