A wine that goes far beyond the typical varietal aromas of Sauvignon! A nose with notes of pear, white peach, exotic fruits, and a touch of beeswax... The palate lives up to the promises of the nose – a very fruity wine with the perfect balance between tension and richness.
Pierre Olivier Bonhomme
Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme – or Pierre-O to his friends – took his first steps in the world of wine as a simple vendengeur, harvesting grapes in 2004 at Clos du Tue-Boeuf, the estate of Thierry Puzelat, one of the Loire’s most genial vignerons, well known to JUS lovers for his natural wines. That year, after the harvest ended Pierre-Olivier never left! He began working for Puzelat, while also pursing his degree at the Lycée Viticole d'Amboise, completed in 2008. In 2009, he joined Puzelat to help develop his négociant business, and together created Puzelat-Bonhomme. It was an immediate success. Four years later, Pierre-Olivier was managing the business on his own – and no longer just selling other people’s wines, having acquired seven hectares of his own in the communes of Monthou-sur-Bièvre, Cellettes and Valaire. The vines include Sauvignon, Gamay, Chenin, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Romorantin and Côt, all of which he vinifies marvellously, producing joyful, living, generous wines – in the image of the man himself.
A nose with notes of white fruits and almonds in their shells. The palate is round and rich, perfectly balanced – this is some luscious juice, with a long finish and a hint of brioche. A must for lovers of Chenin Blanc... and of great wine in general!
A wine that casts aside every "cliché" about Sauvignon and its typical varietal notes! Here we have a rich nose with notes of white fruit, lime blossom and candied lemon. Palate: beautifully ripe, the fruit is supported by a mineral structure, with a long finish ending on a salty note.
Nose: PEAR!!! and a hint of white flowers… Palate: lovely freshness, intense, mineral and saline while boasting very pleasing fruit flavours. A beautifully-crafted juice.
A very fresh nose with notes of yellow apples, white flowers, and a hint of citrus fruit... The palate is round and luscious, with a profusion of bubbles and beautiful freshness – it's the perfect aperitif!
A nose with notes of blackcurrant, cherry, plum, violet, and cocoa... The palate is smooth and complex (flavours of black cherry, olive, liquorice, pepper...), with beautiful body, tannins softer than one could imagine from Côt/Malbec, and a velvety finish. Decanting is highly recommended.
A nose with notes of strawberry compote, cherry, sweet spices and a hint of black olive. The palate boasts remarkable finesse, is smooth and fresh – watch out, this is some eminently drinkable juice! Some gas may be present.
A nose with notes of blackberry, leather, cranberry, and sweet spices. The palate is fruity, perfectly balanced, and very smooth, with beautiful structure... As delicate as lace! Enormous pleasure for your money. A wine best enjoyed over a meal...
A nose with notes of rose, violet, white pepper, cherry, and a hint of minerals. Palate: simply splendid wine – fruity, silky, and so easy to drink, with great finesse and light, luscious tannins.
A nose with notes of roasted apricot, pear compote, and bergamot... Palate: quite approachable for an orange wine, there is not the tannic side that you sometimes find with this type of winemaking. Beautiful freshness, and just the right amount of substance. A huge success.
Fresh notes of quince, citrus fruits, peach, white flowers, and a touch of minerals. The palate is very rich, with a great deal of substance and intensity, and a long finish – this is very, very good. One of our favourites from our tasting of Pierre-Olivier’s range.
