Le Clos de Pallus monopole de Domaine de Pallus is the most familiar plot of the estate, as we all cross it every day to reach the winery.
With southeast exposure, it is part of the earliest vineyards of the domaine and is, in a way, our reference in terms of cabernet franc.
To make this cru just the final part of the plot is harvested, representing about 1 ha of old vines planted on the richest area.
The result is a wine in which the character of the old vineyard prevails and where the cabernet franc manages to transmit wisely the most ancestral truths of the plot.
