CURIOSITY

SINCE THE MIDDLE AGES, THERE HAVE BEEN RECORDS ABOUT THE LIEU-DIT “LE TUE-BOEUF” AND ITS EXCELLENT WINES WHICH WERE ENJOYED BY THE LOCAL NOBILITY AND THE KINGS OF FRANCE; THE FAMILY NAME PUZELAT IS MENTIONED IN 15TH CENTURY DOCUMENTS. JEAN-MARIE WAS JOINED ON THE ESTATE BY HIS YOUNGER BROTHER 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 THE NEW APPELLATION. THEY WERE ALSO IN THEIR EARLIEST STAGES OF EXPERIMENTING WITH SULFUR FREE WINEMAKING. THE TWO BROTHER’S HAD A MONUMENTAL INFLUENCE IN THE WORLD OF NATURAL WINE.
