Domaine de Pallus Chinon Les Pensées de Pallus 2013

SKU 35069


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 AdvocateDark ruby-colored the 2013 Chinon Les Pensées de Pallus Cabernet Franc offers a nicely matured and sweet red fruit aroma intertwined with floral aromas like licorice and violets, but also crystalline or earthy/vegetal flavors. Silky-textured, fresh and vital, with a stunning finesse and charming sweetness, this is a pretty Burgundian Chinon with a long and aromatic, seriously concentrated finish. Less fleshy and dark-flavored like the 2014, but much better than the image of the 2013 vintage.

Wine SpectatorSlightly firm, offering a chalky spine holding tobacco leaf, bitter plum and grilled savory notes together, with a flash of olive through the finish, which is a bit crisp and bony. The better of two bottles tasted. Drink now. 1,200 cases imported.
