The estate Located to the northwest of Pomerol, Château de Sales is a historic property of the appellation, owned by the same family for over five centuries. The heirs of the Lambert family and their children are today entrusted with the destiny of this iconic property on the right bank of Bordeaux.
The vineyard The Château de Sales vineyard is a rarity of the Pomerol appellation, as it covers 47.60 hectares of vines, making it the biggest in the appellation.
The vintage Following a mild and humid winter, the vines budded early. Two frosts occurred on May 5 and 6, but without affecting the vineyard of Château de Sales too much. The unique terroir of the property limited the water stress caused by summer heat waves. The harvest began on September 20 and ended on October 10, yielding fruit with the promise of a great vintage.
The ageing 15% new French oak barrels, 85% barrels from 1 to 3 previous wines.
The blend Merlot (72,5%), cabernet sauvignon (15%), cabernet franc (12,5%).
