Les Pensées de Pallus was the wine that launched Bertrand's vision, and it remains the estate's flagship expression today. Since the debut 2004 vintage, Les Pensées has grown in stature with each passing vintage. It is assembled from old-vine parcels surrounding the winery, 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 rarely seen in the appellation.

Offers enticing mulled spice and black tea nuances at first while a core of gently steeped cherry and blackberry fruit unwinds, showing savory and chalky mineral details through the finish. Latent length. Drink now through 2026.

From the very best plots of the sandy limestone slopes in Cravant-lesCôteaux, the 2017 Chinon Les Pensées de Pallus offers a pure, fresh, fragrant and intense bouquet of ripe and concentrated as well as spicy red and dark berries (most of all blackberries and cassis but also cherries) and earthy, mineral and floral aromas. Silky textured, fresh and vital on the palate, this is a full-bodied, juicy but also straight and tight Cabernet Franc with an intense and elegant, fruity texture that represents both layers of the terroir: sand and tuff limestone. This is an excellent, nervy and stimulating Chinon from Bertrand Sourdais.

The 2017 Chinon Les Pensees de Pallus is refined and light-bodied, creating a harmonious package. Red cherries and violets are wrapped up in the silky midpalate, which offers density without weight and very finely textured tannins.
