2019 Tue-Bœuf Vin Blanc
Notes from the importer - Andrew Guard:
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The Vin Blanc is the starting point for Tue-Bœuf's whites. The fruit is sourced from farmer friends in the Cher Valley; 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-Bœuf 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-Bœuf to be fined and very lightly sulphured (just 2 mg) before bottling. 2019 saw a 60% reduction in production due to May frost. This 2019 is a beauty, sensually fresh, tight, clear and compact with lovely zippy and direct appeal. Wonderfully refreshing, satisfying and incredibly drinkable - Super.
