After some works in biochemistry and cooking, Christophe PACALET creates, in 1999 with his uncle Marcel LAPIERRE, the field “Les Marcellins”. It must be said, faithful to the philosophy of his uncle, Christophe leaves nothing to chance. Concerned about the quality of his wines and respectful of the environment, Christophe does his utmost to obtain the best grapes that he harvests and sorts with his team. – Description from dvoristanac

Christophe Pacalet on Snooth

  • Beaujolais Nouveau Pacalet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Brilliant ripe red fruit aroma, very deep nose. Raisin/rum quality to it. The mouth is a bit sharp, with strong acidity. More so than I prefer, and the finish seems kind of short. Read More

  • Origine Selections Pacalet Christophe Moulin a Vent 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of leather and tar over cherries on the nose leading to initial flavors of sweetness, black tea, spice, & earth that make way for berry flavors finishing with soft flannel tannins. Read More

  • Origine Selections Pacalet Christophe Moulin a Vent 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Starts out with an intricate nose of mushrooms and earth, with tobacco undertones. There's a bit of volatile acidity, but that dies down and past it the fruit flavors take hold. Plums primarily. Good solid, tannic, finish with a graham cracker pie crust flavor. Very nice. Read More

  • Origine Selections Pacalet Christophe Moulin a Vent 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Chiroubles comes from vines at higher elevation that produce delicate wines and Pacalet's minimalist style of winemaking preserves this ethereal quality. A touch funky on the nose with a gamy edge to the wooly, wet cotton, rainwater tones that features an intriguing touch of dried thyme. This is a bit more structured in the mouth with lots of s...
