VDF "Vin Blanc" (Sauvignon)
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The Vin Blanc is the starting point for Tue-Boeuf's whites. The fruit is sourced from farmer friends in the Cher Valley (the Puzelat home turf in the Touraine); 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 Boeuf 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 Boeuf to be fined and very lightly sulfured (just 2 mg) before bottling.
