CLAU DE NELL

Clau de Nell is the late Anne Claude Leflaive's property in the Loire Valley. The Estate was named after its previous Burgundian owners, Claude and Nelly, who originally bought the property back in 2000 in order to follow their dreams of producing biodynamic wine which was then frowned upon in Burgundy. These strict biodynamic principles are still followed both in the vineyard and the cellar.

BUY
TASTING NOTES

A blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 70% Cabernet Franc. Incredibly vibrant nose of violets, raspberries and blueberries. The palate is full of juicy ripe blackberries that are pure, clean and concentrated. The texture is silky smooth thanks to some very fine tannins and the fruit lingers on the lengthy finish. This is a wine of elegance and finesse, enjoy.

TASTING NOTES

A 100% Grolleau blend. The nose is nicely aromatic of cherry, blackberry, violets and a hint of heather. Medium bodied with intense flavours of crushed red cherries and blackberries coat the palate with a touch of smoke in the background. The finish is long with refreshing acidity and a currant leafy complexity.

produced but it wasn’t until 2011 that the Domaine was back to producing wines commercially.

 With only 10ha in total, the grapes are hand-picked with great care and fermentation is carried out for around 30 days. Temperature control and chemicals are banned except for tiny doses of sulphur to protect the wine from oxidation. A traditional, 200 year old manual press is used to separate the skins from the wine which spends 18-24 months in barrels before being bottled and matured in the cellars.
