Anjou Rouge L’Aiglerie Terre de l’Elu, 100% Cabernet Franc, Organic Wine, aged in barrels, rich and full, outstanding complexity and basically delicious Loire red. An initial minty nose, followed by red fruits aromas along with fresh herbs and scents of camphor. The smooth, velvety texture softens with fine tannins and the fruity complex finish is long and fresh. Loire red is delicious and sometimes overlooked, the wines can be full but are never cloying and without excessive alcohol. L’Aiglerie with red meats and roast veg is outstanding.

An agronomic 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 what is now Terre de l’Elu. 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. 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!
