Clos de l’Elu Bastingage 2016
Grape variety: Chenin 100%
Terroir: Anjou noir, St Aubin de Luigné, Organic wine
A deep and complex nose reveals buttery aromas. The attack- full and plump – is followed by a very beautiful minerality typical of shale soils. Some nice citrus notes reminiscent of candied lemons. A gastronomic wine that calls for a special dish.
To appreciate it:
Serve around 12 ° C after one hour. Best eaten with white, firm fish (bar, St Pierre),a shellfish salad with coriander, a filet of perch with mashed parsnip&sauce vierge & grapefruit segments. Can also accompany cheeses such as Valençay,Comté or goat’s.
Bastingage can be appreciated now and will continue to improve for at least another decade.
