Anjou Rouge Maupiti Terre de l’Elu, Biodynamic wine, Gamay, Cabernet Franc blend, elegant, rich and very long on the finish. Specialising in red wines, Clos de L’Elu produce fabulous opulent wines with depth and fiesse from their small vineyards on schist soils in Anjou. The Maupiti on schist and quartz soils is whole bunch fermented in concrete vats and then aged for 6 months on the less in the vat. It is a wine of such lush delight that we have not found anyone yet who does not love the wine. We are in the Loire, so not a brash warm climate red this one, the colour is medium and lightly hazy – unfiltered – and the nose and plate are soft, enveloping and express ripe red fruits, spices and warmth.

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!

    Full of flavour, instant fruit notes and banging finishing notes on the palette. Definitely worth the price!
