Jean-Marie and Thierry Puzelat took over the family estate around 20 years ago, 13 hectares in Touraine, in the Loir-et-Cher. Time and a series of encounters would put them on the path to natural wines. In 1999, the brothers decided to vinify for themselves, and to stop taking the easy route of a “guaranteed” income from the local wine cooperative. Once decided, they went all in, determined to produce wines without artifice, without sulphur... Today, Thierry is the Vice-President of the natural wine association AVN. He explains his approach: “One must maintain a certain level of control. Making ‘supernatural’ wine, verging on vinegar, doesn’t interest me. The goal, after all, is to enjoy drinking it... “. He loves meeting people, sharing a bottle, conversing with his brothers in arms: “The purity of a wine without sulphur... the absence of a veil between the wine and us... in the end it’s our body that tells us ‘yes please’!”. And after dozens and dozens of wine fairs and encounters, people have heard that message loud and clear, and his wines have found their public.
A nose of raspberries and ground pepper... Tasting superb from the barrel, it will surely become closed for a time after bottling – will benefit from cellaring... The palate is concentrated, with a spicy finish – a superb wine.
Sometimes called Tue-bœuf’sP'tit Blanc, or little white. A clean white wine, precise and expressive, with notes of candied lemon and anise... A palate bristling with tension, citrus, and lovely body you wouldn’t expect at this price...
