Anjou Ephata Chenin Clos de l'Elu, Biodynamic wine, 100% Chenin Blanc, barrel fermented, this is a crystal wine of great aromatic purity. A subtle nose reveals fresh aromas and exotic fruit. The attack is silky and enveloping and stretches to iodine notes. This is a Chenin with an almost tannic structure, elegant and unusual, a great wine with food. Serve with a cod or sea bream carpaccio with chermoula dressing (coriander, mint, lemon, olive oil, garlic, paprika). Typically good with fish, white meat or poultry cooked with lemon... or on exotic dishes. Open up to the charm of Ephata, the wine will do the rest!

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!
