P'tit Buisson Touraine Blanc

2018

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Tue Boeuf has been purchasing and harvesting this fruit for 15 years from a nearby Cher Valley site called Petit Buisson, a single 1.4-hectare parcel of 35-year-old vines on flinty clay and limestone soils, organically farmed and hand-harvested. Fermented with natural yeasts and aged on its lees with stirring in used Burgundy barrels for 6 months; bottled unfiltered and with a minute amount of sulfur. Stylistically, it falls in between the crisp, tank-aged P'tit Blanc and the full-bodied, rich, old-vine, longer-aged Buisson Pouilleux (which has a deceptively similar name). Classified as Touraine AOC.
