Blue-black in the glass with a deep purple rounding the rim. Scents of red and black fruit intermingle with Blueberry ink, a warm note of garrigue, pine and pounded limestone. The palate is a delectable expression of juicy plum, blackberry, black cherry and deft flavors of sweet herbs. A buoyant note of minerality emerges near the finish and that is given a nice boost by the wines silken acidity. L’ Enclos will age gracefully for more than a decade, however, it drinks beautifully in its relative youth.
Magali Terrier, originally from the Beaujolais, worked in diverse wine-growing regions throughout France. In the late 1990’s, she began to seek out a terroir where she could freely express her passion for making extraordinary organic wine and that search led her to the Languedoc. Magali Terrier first set her eyes on Peyriac de mer, a diamond in the rough with a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea, and it was love at first sight. She started the 2 Anes winery in the year 2000, the same year Jenny & François was founded.
Being byodynamic, the winery is a diverse farm with many different animals, including of course, donkeys, but also sheep and many other animals. The donkeys are allowed to wonder amongst the vines, where they eat the garrigue and other herbs growing everywhere on this property. When Magali begins to prune in the spring, she often discovers that the donkeys have done a “pre-pruning,” having eaten some of the shoots and canes along with the garrigue. Vegan.
