It has dark berry fruit on the nose with a cheeky touch of hickory developing in the glass.

Please note, this wine is priced In Bond (ex Duty & VAT).

Formerly winemaker at the legendary Prieuré-Roch, Philippe makes wines which are uniquely exciting, always 100% whole bunch, eschewing the use of sulphites and only using wild yeasts. Not for the faint-hearted, Philippe’s wines are nevertheless truly special, visceral, uncompromising and muscular but fizzing with energy and alive with minerality.

The 2016 vintage Pacalet’s production in 2016 is 40% down on 2015 - fortunately what is left is superb. For reds this is a vintage for freshness of fruit, terroir precision and excellent phenolic ripeness of tannins. Fruit ripeness varies site to site, but none of the wines were anything less than well-ripened, some show plumpness of fruit, some freshness and visible terroir precision at this young stage. Pacalet’s style remains one of ebullient, vivacious fruit, crisp acidity and ripe tannin. 

It has dark berry fruit on the nose with a cheeky touch of hickory developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fresh, slightly savory entry, a keen line of acidity with a saline finish that lingers in the mouth.
