2017 saw a different approach to the vinification of Les Palennes, this time with a 50/50 split of destemmed and whole bunch fruit. The result is a wine of great complexity and concentration, with layers of herbs nestled between dark, brooding purple fruit. A wonderfully haunting expression of cabernet franc.
