Description

A complex Pomerol wine stemming from a great Bordeaux vintage

The estate

Located to the northwest of Pomerol, Château de Sales is a historic estate on the right bank of Bordeaux and has been owned by the same family for over five centuries. Today, the Lambert heirs and their children perpetuate the legacy of this iconic estate that produces fine Pomerol wines.

The vineyard

Comprising a surface area of 47.60 hectares of vines, Château de Sales’ vineyard is the largest in the Pomerol appellation.

The vintage

A rainy winter preceded a particularly cool and wet spring, which disrupted the flowering period. No rain was recorded from the end of June until mid-September, when rainy spells triggered the ripening process. As the harvest drew closer, the ideal temperature variations between day and night refined the ripeness and preserved the aromatic richness.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is aged in new barrels (5%) and in 1 to 3-year old barrels (95%).

The blend

Merlot (79.5%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (13%)

Cabernet Franc (7.5%).

Château de Sales 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A deep purple colour.

Nose

Pleasant notes of black fruits (blueberry, blackberry) highlight the beautiful maturity of the Merlot grapes.

Palate

Perfectly translating the nose, the palate reveals an ideal balance between freshness and aromatic complexity, all of which is sustained by subtle woody notes. The melted tannins, the silky texture and the long finish guarantee a great ageing potential.
