Details

Anjou Chenin Blanc Bastingage Clos de l'Elu, organic wine, 100% Chenin Blanc, fermented in barrels, gorgeous balance of rich white wine and Loire complexity and finesse, melts in the mouth with fish or white meat. The wild fermentation for this delightful organic and natural Chenin Blanc takes place in old barrels and after a natural malolactic remains there with the lees for 12-18 months. The resulting wine is full bodied but fresh, with white flowers, notes of earth and wild fauna, citrus notes and the minerals that come through with shale soils. In the mouth, its richness makes you fell you are drinking something expensive. Thomas recommends drinking with wild Salmon, Crab with corriander or with expressive cheeses like valançay, comté or chèvre, mmm tasty.

An agronomical engineer by trade, Thomas spent many of his formative years working in Champagne, California and Provence. In 2008, he settled down in the Anjou and took over Clos de l’Élu. With 8 grape varieties over 30 plots, covering 25 hectares, one of the particularities of the estate is that their top wines are aged in clay amphorae. On exceptional vintages, Thomas also makes a delicious Chaume. Thomas also ferments and matures his white wines in old barrels with wild yeasts. All production is totally natural and organic with elements of biodynamic viticulture as well. The wines have a depth and rich texture which always leaves the drinker reaching for another glass!

  1. How good is this wine?

    Smooth, rich and full texture, honeyed, with bags of lingering flavours, the bottle emptied all to easily.
