Clos de Tue-Boeuf Vin Blanc, infamous winemaker's sauvignon blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc. A clean white wine, precise and expressive, with notes of candied lemon and anise... A palate bristling with tension, citrus, and lovely body.
The Vin Blanc is the starting point for Tue-Boeuf's whites. The fruit 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 for 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 (just 2 mg) before bottling.
