Brothers Thierry and Jean-Marie Puzelat’s Clos du Tue-Boeuf is one of the oldest estates in Cheverny (the property and the Puzelat family are mentioned in records dating to the 1400s). Jean-Marie, the older brother by 10 years, was joined on the estate by Thierry in the early 90’s and they began converting their vines to organic viticulture. When the Cheverny AOC was created with the 1993 vintage, some varietals became outlawed from the blends, and the brothers started a yearly struggle to get their wines accepted under their appellation. So many of their wines are simply bottled as Vins de Pays or Vins de Table.
