Dom de Pallus La Rougerie, 2015
The plot of land of La Rougerie is set in the top part of the property on a gentle slope facing southwards. Besides, this ideal geographic position, the vines grow on a pure clay stain which gives the cabernet franc all its grandeur in a mystic, deep and fascinating nose. A velvety texture with classic tannins and a never-ending finish in mouth make La Rougerie feel the king in Pallus.
La Rougerie has become the grand cru in Domaine de Pallus and the whole appellation in Chinon thanks to a close observation of both the vine and the terroir and a required action from Bertrand Sourdais.
