Pineau d'Aunis Clos de l'Elu 2016, 100% Pineau d'Aunis, Organic Wine, rare grape, natural vibrancy, delicious berry fruits. Pineau d'Aunis is the perfect grape for natural wine fanatics. When made well, it has the deliciously wild, juicy berry character and pale colour alongside tension and energy that makes pure, authentic wine so moreish. Of course, in the hands of Clos de L'Elu. it becomes something very special and extra delicious, a must try. Goes well with anything, great with cheese, pates and pickles especially, also nice from the fridge.


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!
