Ludovic Engelvin, VDF “Cru-Elles” 75cl

Cru-Elles Engelvin is 100% Biodynamic Grenache farmed on ancient clay limestone soils in the Languedoc. Cru-Elles (so named as it was born shortly after a break up with his then girl friend) is a stunningly fresh young Grenache with a balance rarely captured in this grape from the hot regions of France.

Still only 25, we are very excited to see future works of Engelvin-fantastic!

A trained sommelier and former pupil of Didier Dagueneau, Ludovic went back to his native Languedoc and opened a wine shop. He also bought 1 hectare of old Grenache Noir planted in 1955 and started making a bit of wine on the side. A few years later, with a few more hectares at his disposal, he sold the shop and went into winemaking full time. His schooling becomes apparent when you taste his wines as he takes Grenache to a level of refinement rarely seen.

A few must haves
