Domaine de Pallus - 2019 - Chinon Rouge Messanges - 750 ml.
Sub Region: Chinon
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2019 - Size: 750 ml. - Type: RedWhile achieving stardom at Spain’s Dominio de Atauta, Bertrand Sourdais remained passionate for his native Chinon, and for its emblematic variety, Cabernet Franc. In 2003, with his father’s retirement nearing,Bertrand took up the challenge of creating something great at the family estate, Domaine de Pallus. Bertrand has brought to the project an insider's sense of tradition combined with an outsider's eye for change. He aspires to test the limits of possibility for the vineyards that 5 generations of his family have worked.
A silky red, with a charming core of damson plum, black pepper and rosemary. The acidity here binds everything together, while the light tannins add a bit of firmness to the structure. Well-balanced and juicy, this would be great with food now. Drink now through 2028.
