Located to the northwest of Pomerol, Chateau de Sales is a historic property on the right bank of Bordeaux. The chateau has belonged to the Lambert family for over five centuries.
Château de Sales 2021 is a Pomerol wine that stems from a 47.60-hectare vineyard, the largest in the appellation.
A mild, wet winter favoured an early budburst. The cool spring was marked by three days of frost (6, 7 and 13th of April) which affected part of the vineyard. The rapid vegetative development in June and the strong mildew pressure at the beginning of summer were controlled by the estate's diligent teams. Although flowering was rapid and uniform, the veraison period was slowed down due to the weather’s instability. Harvesting began on September 24th and lasted until October 7th. The grapes were picked in a plot-by-plot manner in order to ensure that the grapes were harvested at optimum maturity.
