A subtle, lush bouquet. A veritable infusion of red fruits on the palate, with light, spicy notes. A delicate and supple wine.
Serve around 15°C. Ready to drink now, will keep up to ten years.
Match it with: a tartar of red tuna and red berries; but also with Grison beef marinated in olive oil and lemon; or, quite simply with some shavings of Pata Negra Bellota ham.
An agronomist by trade, Thomas, spent his formative years working in Champagne, Burgundy, Provence and California before settling down in the schistrich lands of Anjou Noir with his partner Charlotte in 2008. Together they started Terre De l’Élu (formerly known as Clos de l’Elu), which tends to eight different grape varieties, covering 20 hectares of organically farmed land in the heart of the Loire. In 2018, the duo decided to relinquish the word “Clos” which is reserved only for appellation wines. Due to the restrictions imposed under the appellation rules, Charlotte and Thomas say “we prefer to give priority to our freedom and creativity rather than trying to make wines that do not resemble us.”
