A supple and fresh red wine from Pomerol

The estate

Located to the northwest of Pomerol, Chateau 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 47.60 hectares of vines, Chateau de Sales’ vineyard is the largest in the Pomerol appellation.

The vintage

Although the dry conditions of April favoured the budburst in the vineyard, the cool, wet spring delayed the flowering period. The hot, dry weather in July was offset by the cool, damp weather in August, which disrupted the ripening of the grapes. The harvest took place from the 1st to the 12th of October. Rigorous work was carried out in a plot-by-plot manner, which enabled each terroir and variety to be harvested at optimum ripeness.

Vinification and aging

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

The blend

Merlot (89%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (11%).
