Description

The typical features of a red Grand Vin from Pomerol

The estate

Located to the northwest of Pomerol, Château 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 a surface area of 47.60 hectares of vines, Château de Sales’ vineyard is the largest in the Pomerol appellation.

The vintage

While the beginning of 2018 started with wet and rainy weather conditions, which led to a severe risk of fungal diseases, the very good weather conditions during summer followed by a dry and warm autumn led to a beautiful phenolic ripeness. The harvest started on September 18th and lasted until October 5th.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is aged in new barrels (18%) and 1 to 3-year old barrels (82%).

The blend

Merlot (69%)

Cabernet Franc (16%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (15%).

Château de Sales 2018: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

This wine flaunts a beautiful garnet red colour.

Nose

The nose combines elegant woody notes with delicious ripe fruit fragrances (blackcurrant).

Palate

Complex, the palate exhales aromas of black fruits, blackberry and spices. The palate is seductive with its silky tannins, its balance and its very fine and persistent finish.
