    The Charm and Finesse of an Unmissable Red Wine from Pomerol

    Heir to a great tradition handed down from generation to generation within the same family for more than 5 centuries, Chateau de Sales is one of the most emblematic properties of the Pomerol appellation on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux region. It is also the largest in the AOC Pomerol.

    Excellence, tradition and modernity are the values cultivated by the family, and beautifully reflected in the Chateau de Sales 2017. This challenging vintage demanded the great know-how and management of the property, which is famous for wonderful wines expressing the wealth of their terroir of origin.

    Despite the frost that hit the Chateau de Sales vineyard during the nights at the end of April 2017, extreme care was taken in the vineyard to save the vines. Vines affected by frost were meticulously selected and marked. The grapes were harvested at full ripeness, allowing them to reveal their full personality during the winemaking process.

    This very precise blend is dominated by Merlot (78.5%), which is complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (12.5%) and Cabernet Franc (9%). In order to respect the purity of the fruit without overpowering it with oak, the oak-aging was carried out in only 15% new French oak barrels and 85% in barrels of 1 to 3 previous uses.

    Parker : 84 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 De Sales reveals notes of baked plums, Black Forest cake and balsamic with hints of pencil shavings, tilled soil and cedar. The medium-bodied palate has a fair bit of chewy oak with muscular fruit and a slightly rustic finish.
