Clos de Tue-Boeuf Rouillon - All berries with a slap of earth and spice, divine
50% Pinot Noir, 50% Gamay from a small parcel of clay and flint soils over limestone of Blois. This shows bright, floral tart plum, raspberry and wild strawberry aromas with citrus and earth. The palate is ripe and sappy with wild strawberry, plum skin, earth and spice. The finish is long with fruity and mineral flavors and a bit of balancing tannin. Irresistible as always on release, this should be very interesting after a few years in the cellar. Another beauty! - Importer Note

These wines are cult classics, beautiful, fresh and pure. Small allocations are commonplace, the wines revered for their energy in youth and ability to cellar for long periods.
