Clos du Tue-Boeuf, 2018 Update

Thierry Puzelat is an influential figure in the Loire Valley, especially when it comes to the more natural, non-interventionist side of wine. This he has achieved through two roles, firstly as lecturer on the viticulture and oenology course at Amboise, secondly as mentor (both formal and informal) to many of the region’s names in their early years. Names such as René Mosse, Hervé Villemade and Brendan Tracey, among others, all learnt their craft at Thierry’s feet.
