Vin de France Magellan Terre de l'Elu (Clos de L'Elu) 2018

About the Producer Terre de l'Elu

Charlotte and Thomas Carsin, originally from Brittany, embarked on their great adventure of establishing the Terre de l'Elu domain because of their passion for Anjou Noir and Chenin grapes. It was in 2008 that this former wine consultant, and communications and management manager settled in the Layon valley. After a little over 12 years there, they now have twenty hectares farmed by Terre de l'Elu, which is certified organic, both in white and red, since Cabernet Franc, Grolleau and Pineau d'Aunis vines are also planted here. Wishing to free themselves from the shackles of their name in order to be able to act with greater spontaneity and creativity, Thomas and Charlotte Carsin changed their name from Clos de l'Elu to Terre de l'Elu in 2019. This is because any domain that is not part of the appellation may not use the words "Domaines", "Clos" or "Château" on its labels.
The entire team, including two additional full-time staff members, is dedicated to creating top-class parcel wines. This means: rigorous disbudding; pruning adapted to the grape variety and the parcel; tillage of the soils; hand-harvests in baskets; sorting; gravity-fed winemaking in the cellar; fermentation using indigenous yeasts; whole bunches for the red wines, aged in vats, barrels or amphoras according to the cuvée.
We're delighted to have this lovely establishment as one of our partner domains, producing fine, deep, gourmet wines that give pride of place to Anjou Noir, the new Eldorado of the Loire Valley.
