Domaine de Pallus Chinon Les Pensées de Pallus 2011

Save $5.00 (22%)

SKU 05322


Since the debut 2004 vintage, Les Pensées has grown in stature with each passing vinage. It is assembled from parcels on several different soil types, with the aim to define "Chinon" in a glass. It reveals classic Loire Valley Cabernet Franc aromas and flavors, but with remarkable precision and the kind of textural depth that is rarely seen in Chinon.

Wine SpectatorThis has good depth, with a richness to the layers of damson plum, black cherry and red currant fruit, accented by notes of bouncy pepper, savory and olive. The finish lets a briar accent hang on. Should mellow with moderate cellaring. Drink now through 2018. 3,500 cases made.
