Details

I have known Bertrand Sourdais, the owner and winemaker of Le Domaine de Pallus for many years, and I am very proud to introduce his great wines in Malaysia. Bertrand became the 5th generation of the Sourdais Family to manage the estate when he took over in 2004. Since he took over, he has been slowly converting the estate towards a fully organic approach, and working parcel per parcel (some planted in sand, others in limestone) to make a more drastic selection. He produce extremely refined and complex wines which are friendly to drink now, but can also withstand some ageing.

‘Les Pensees’ (name of a flower which is very present around the vineyards) is the Domaine flagship cuvee, the one that put them on the World Wine Map a few years ago, getting top-scores everywhere. Sourced from parcels surrounding the estate, planted dominantly on sand-limestone hillsides and pebbly sand parcels, the wine is oak-aged for over 12 months and a further 6 months in tanks. This is a beautiful bold dry red with great depth, richness to the layers of capsicum, plum, black cherry and redcurrant fruit, accented by notes of bouncy pepper, savory and olive. Perfect with a nice grilled steak!

Had this on our anniversary night, and first note that hits you after uncorking was the intense blackcurrant berry flavor. Overtime, as the wine settles the savoriness pops brightly to the top. Really superb. (Posted on 17/05/2017)

Rounded and satisfied
Review by Jonathan
If you know your wine, you'd know Chinon is famous for the Cab Franc and it didn't disappoint in comparison with other Cab Franc I had tasted.
An all rounder, yet provide a hint of tannin to twinkle with the taste, it has a clean finish to it and not over complex. Though, it would be advisable to give it 5-10min to breathe for optimum experience. (Posted on 03/01/2017)
Good allternative to Cabernet
Review by WinePassion
A richly colored wine from the Loire easily mistaken for a cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon. Attractive nose with just the right amount of fruit with subdued earthy undertones. For such a low alcohol content the mouth feel is positively weighty with vibrant flavors shining through. Good idea to decant it shortly before serving to showcase its finesse to the full. Can't go wrong pairing this with red meat! (Posted on 02/10/2016)
