90% Côt/10% Gamay. La Guerrerie is an estate parcel named in reference to its history as a battlefield in the Hundred Years' War. It is a flat, clay-rich site co-planted with Côt, aka Malbec, and Gamay in the 1980's. The Puzelats farm it organically and harvest it by hand.

As is typical of Tue-Boeuf reds, the fruit goes as whole clusters into huge oak vats for a spontaneous fermentation, which is a semi-carbonic maceration with a closed top for around 10 to 14 days. The clusters are pressed and the wine finishes with a non-carbonic, open top fermentation in vat. This is one of the stalwart Puzelat reds and the wine that got me interested in their wines; it's got the earthiness and colour of Malbec with the vibrant freshness of Gamay, super delicious and an absolute star at the table! - Andrew Guard
