The complexity of a Pomerol in a great Bordeaux vintage

The chateau de Sales is the largest wine-producing estate in the small Pomerol appellation with about 47 hectares of vines. Rarely has this surface area hardly changed for 550 years! Another surprising fact is that this majestic property with its 17th century chateau has been handed down from woman to woman for many generations. But the fame of this Pomerol is of course largely deserved thanks to its wines with a silky, gourmet style.

Huge vintage at Bordeaux 2016, which is the ideal vintage for all Pomerol wine lovers. At Chateau de Sales the small gravel and sand rich in iron oxides that make up the terroir are revealed in the aromatic complexity of the vintage. Produced from a blend of 79.5% of Merlot (the flagship grape variety of the right bank of Bordeaux), 13% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 7.5% of Cabernet Franc, Chateau de Sales 2016 was aged for 18 months, including 12 months in barrels, after fermentation in thermo-regulated concrete vats.

The dress of this Pomerol 2016 is deep ruby. The pleasant notes of black fruits (blueberry, blackberry) underline the impeccably ripe Merlots. On the palate, the wine is balanced between freshness, texture and aromatic complexity faithful to the nose with light woody notes. The melted tannins, its silky texture and its long finish ensure an important aging potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 De Sales is medium garnet-purple colored and has a savory nose of red and black berries, plums and earth plus a waft of smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate is chewy with an earthy character and restrained finish.
