Pierre Olivier Bonhomme started as an apprentice at Clos du Tue-Boeuf with Thierry Puzelat and his brother Jean Marie Puzelat. Recognizing Pierre Olivier's talent through the years, Thierry ventured into a négoce business with Pierre Olivier under the label Puzelat-Bonhomme. They sourced the grapes and rent the vineyards from their friends. All the vines are grown organically. With Jean Marie Puzelat retiring in 2014, now Thierry Puzelat is full time at the family domain Clos du Tue-Boeuf and Pierre Olivier Bonhomme is now the sole owner of his estate-Bonhomme. The methods in the vineyard and winery are unwavering – dedication to organic farming, the recognition of indigenous grape varieties and careful vinification without additives to make distinctive hand-crafted wines.
Excellent expression of Cot (or Malbec). Inky red with hints of graphite on the nose leading into mouthwatering red fruits - cherrystone, bitter small plums with a dusting of herbs.
