2012 Clos de l'Èlu Anjou Rouge «Magellan» (150cl)
Region: France, Loire Valley - Anjou
Farming: Organic and Biodynamic
Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc
Dry, medium-bodied red | Steak, decant
Thomas Carsin resisted the commercial temptation to rip out the old vines and worked hard to restore the vineyards to full health; most of the land is now or about to be certified organic, and more importantly, the vines are once again producing grapes and wine worthy of the terroir.
The Magellan is named after the first explorer that sailed the world. Expect lots of bellpepper, hints of mint, and supple tannins to make a powerful, smooth sailing Cabernet Franc ready to connect the world together with the spirit of adventure!
