About

93+

"The 2009 les Pensées de Pallus is very much cut from the same stylistic cloth as the great Saumur-Champgny bottlings from Clos Rougeard. There is a fair bit of new oak here, but done in a very graceful and unobtrusive style that really brings out the best in this wine on both the nose and the palate. The deep and beautifully balanced bouquet offers up a quite red fruity interpretation of this vintage, delivering notes of red and black cherries, lovely soil tones, coffee, fresh herbs, a nice touch of spicy oak and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with fine, nascent complexity, lovely mid-palate depth and excellent length and grip on the focused and moderately tannic finish. This is a very high class bottle of Chinon. 2012-2030."
