Desirade Sauvignon Blanc Terre de l’Elu, organic wine, 100% barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc, outstanding texture and depth of flavour, Sauvignon Blanc as it should be. A complex bouquet of spicy notes (ginger, nutmeg) and candied oranges. A rich and powerful attack on the palate with a long and fresh finish with hints of mint. Breathtakingly good Sauvignon.

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!

    I first tasted this wine about a year ago at a wine fair, and treated myself to a bottle of it this Christmas. It certainly didn’t disappoint. So complex, rich and utterly moreish. My only complaint – the bottle didn’t last long enough!
