About Clos de l'Elu

Loire, France

In January 2008, Charlotte & Thomas embarked on a marvellous winemaking adventure by acquiring the Clos de l’Elu, on the schist-rich lands of the Anjou Noir. They’re both deeply passionate about the life of their 20 Ha domain, which lies on the finest terroirs of the Layon valley.
