Clos de l'Elu Anjou-Villages 'Magellan' 2013

Clos de l’Elu’s 30 plots span over 22 hectares of vines, located on the southern-exposed slopes of the Loire. The estate focuses on classic Loire varieties, farmed using biodynamic principles, hand-harvested, and spontaneously fermented. The 2013 ‘Magellan’ is an organic, amphorae-vinified Cab Franc, aged 20 months in neutral French oak. Earthy & fruit-forward, with nuanced pepper undertones and gritty tannins. A knockout with white meat & tacos!


Cabernet Franc

In Bordeaux Franc is the eccentric middle child between #1 Son Cabernet Sauvignon and cute baby-of-the-family Merlot. In the Loire (Chinon & Bourgueil) it is proudly itself: savory earthy herbal.
