Your go-to transitional red.
Clos du Tue Boeuf’s “La Guerrerie” the perfect bottle to enjoy right before heading into heavy red season. This blend of ⅔ Côt and ⅓ Gamay is named “La Guerrerie” in reference to a single parcel’s history as a battlefield in the Hundred Year’s War. The vines are 40 years of age on average, yielding a lively red from one of the Loire’s legends.
- Clos du Tue-Boeuf is a project between two brothers, Jean-Marie and Thierry Puzelat, and was one of the leading producers of the Natural Wine movement within the Loire Valley in the 1990s.
- The Puzelat brothers tend their 10-hectare family property in Les Montils within the Cheverny AOC and rent four hectares in the Touraine AOC.
- Thierry Puzelat’s favorite wines to drink are the ones “where the bottle is empty in “less than five minutes.”
- Serving with a slight chill.
