Terre de L’Elu (Clos de l’Elu), Anjou Blanc “Ephata” 2012

L'Elu Ephata 2012

Imported by Free Run, Seattle WA.

Yellow-gold. Anjou Chenin raised in amphora and it’s at once textured and vivacious, the clay vessel imparting both a positive oxidation while retain purity and preserving the vine’s energy. Like a rock dipped in beeswax and the tones go to karin and a honeyed herbal tea.  Stubborn, penetrating finish. Worth noting this kept Barb’s interest all the way through the bottle, as she’s quick to dismiss the clumsier gimmicks at the cutting edge. Now – 2020.
