2022 Clos du Tue-Boeuf Cheverny Rouge Rouillon, France
50% Pinot Noir/50% Gamay. Named Rouillon or "rusty" for the reddish tint of its clay-limestone soils, this 1.9-hectare estate vineyard is made up of two parcels, one of Pinot Noir planted in 1991 and one of Gamay planted in 1996. The Puzelats farm it organically and harvest it by hand. As is typical of Tue Boeuf reds, the whole clusters go through a semi-carbonic maceration and spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and without sulfur in vat. Rouillon is aged for 6 months in used demi-muids It is bottled without filtration and with little to no sulfur, depending on the vintage. Rouillon is classified as AOC Cheverny.
