Vin Blanc - 2019 - Thierry Puzelat
Sometimes called Tue-bœuf’s P'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...

A blended cuvée of 65% Sauvignon and 35% Chardonnay, from Puzelat’s wine negotiant business. Puzelat buys grapes from growers who share his values and he automatically downgrades his wine classification to Vin de France.
