Louis Dressner Selections - Wine Importer
Cheverny and Touraine from the Infamous Clos du Tue-Boeuf.
Thierry Puzelat loves goats.


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.


This interview with Thierry Puzelat stems from a series of emails from October 2010.


This visit at Clos du Tue-Boeuf took place in July, 2013.
