MOSSE BANGARANG PINEAU D'AUNIS BLEND 2020

LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE
GUAVA LEES LIVELY
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC / 750ML

Light lees driven red, brimming with guava, overripe strawberry and sweet saline seaweed reduction. The reduction and light spritz dissipates in minutes to unveil a stunning energised red, served chilled or as is.

From the producer: The Pineau d’Aunis had just 4 days of whole bunch maceration to make it into a lightish red. The Cabernet Franc was destemmed and macerated for 10 days.

The juice was then transferred to concrete tanks and stainless steel tanks for fermentation and maturation.

Millennial movie buffs might know that Bangarang was the battle cry of the Lost Boys in the Stephen Spielberg movie Hook, immortalised when Robin Williams as Peter Pan used it to call them for help. The movie was a favourite of Joseph and Sylvestre Mosse when they were children and we suspect still is. (The lot number of this wine is Hook3.)

This wine is just perfect for summer drinking slightly chilled.

PERSISTENT FLORAL EVOLVING
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC / 750ML

Whole bunch fermented then pressed to amphora and large format oak. A spice fuelled light red with exotic fruits - guava, green mango and mangosteen.

From the Producer: Manually harvested in 20kg bins. Natural fermentation (natural yeast) in vats. Whole bunch maceration over 15 days. 12 months aging half in barrels (600L), half in Amphora. No filtration. Purple and light color, floral and peppery aromas (Sechuan pepper). A bold attack of spice evolves into floral notes. A delicate and persistent mouth. A remarkable wine full of finesse and elegance.

In January 2008, Charlotte and Thomas embarked on a marvellous winemaking adventure with the acquisition of the Terre de l'Élu domain (ex Clos de l’Élu), on the schist-rich lands of the Anjou Noir. With many years’ experience as a wine consultant (Thomas), in the fields of communication and management (Charlotte), they are both deeply passionate about the life of this domain which lies on the finest terroirs of the Layon valley. The 20 hectares are farmed organically and the domain offers a structured range of different wines. If it was the Chenin that attracted Thomas and Charlotte to Anjou, the red grape varieties (Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Pineau d'Aunis) continue to inspire them with deep, rich vintages that are expressive and full of finesse.

Under this name, Terre de l'Élu, nothing changes in the way we manage our vines or produce our wine. However, we felt cramped in the straitjacket of appellations, and following several remarks on the non-conformity of the organoleptic qualities of our wines, we preferred to give priority to our freedom and creativity rather than trying to make wines that do not resemble us.

The word "Clos" being reserved for appellation wines only, we have therefore created a new name: Terre de l'Élu. A name full of meaning for the Breton winegrowers who love to take to the sea so much!
