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.
Comprising a surface area of 47.60 hectares, Chateau de Sales’ vineyard is the largest in the Pomerol appellation.
Following a mild and wet winter, the vines budded early. Two frosts occurred on May 5th and 6th, however they did not affect the vineyards of Chateau de Sales. Thanks to the estate’s terroir, the water stress caused by the heat during the summer months was limited. Harvesting began on September 20th and ended on October 8th. The grapes suggest a promising and fine vintage.
