Rich & Spicy

Terre de l’Elu is located in the tiny village of Saint-Aubin de Luigne, in the Loire Valley. This Anjou Rouge is a blend of Gamay and Cabernet Franc. It's a biodynamic wine, rich and full, with outstanding complexity. It has a subtle, lush bouquet and a veritable infusion of red fruits on the palate, with light, spicy notes. A delicate yet supple wine.

This wine would go well with tuna tartar; but also with beef marinated in olive oil and lemon. Enjoy!

About the Winery

Terre de l'Élu

In January 2008, Charlotte and Thomas embarked on a marvelous winemaking adventure with the acquisition of the Terre de l'Élu domain, on the schist-rich lands of the Anjou Noir. With many years’ experience as a wine consultant (Thomas) and in the fields of communication and management (Charlotte), they are both deeply passionate about the life of this domain which lies on the finest terroirs of the Layon Valley.

The 20 hectares are farmed organically and the domain offers a structured range of different wines. If it was the Chenin that attracted Thomas to Anjou, the red grape varieties (Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Pineau d'Aunis) continue to inspire him with deep, rich vintages that are expressive and full of finesse. Our domain is 20 hectares (50 acres) in size and is composed of 6 growing parcels of vines that surround the village. Each parcel has its own personal regime: the way the soil is tilled, natural cover crops, more or less severe de-budding, clipping and pruning where necessary.
