Vivacious - not vapid - glou from the Anjou.

The Maupiti Rouge by Terre de L’Elu is a blend of Gamay and Cabernet Franc sourced from 20-45 year old vines within the Anjou. The fruit was harvested by hand prior to being fermented whole cluster in French oak vats for a 15 day maceration period. Fun without being frivolous, this is a vin-de-soif style quaffer, with plenty of complexity.
  • Terre de L’Elu’s first vines were planted in the 1950s by the Blot family, and the fruit was initially sold off to growers until the property was purchased by Thomas and Charlotte Carsin.
  • Thomas decided to become a vigneron in 1990 after years of experience working in vineyard management in California.
  • Thomas returned to France to consult in Champagne, and eventually he and his partner Charlotte found the property in the Anjou.
  • The fruit is organically farmed.
