Description

One of the estate’s most beautiful vintages

The estate

Located to the northwest of PomerolChâteau de Sales is a historic property of the appellation, owned by the same family for over five centuries. The heirs of the Lambert family and their children are today entrusted with the destiny of this iconic property on the right bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

The Château de Sales vineyard is a rarity of the Pomerol appellation, as it covers 47.60 hectares of vines, making it the biggest in the appellation.

The vintage

After a rainy winter and a particularly hot February, the vines underwent an early budding, followed by an equally early and homogeneous flowering. Summer was subsequently very hot, with a drought settling in from 19 June to 12 August. The water reserves, which were built up in winter, allowed Château de Sales to navigate this period without being affected. The early nature of the vintage lasted up to the harvests, which took place from 10 to 30 September.

The ageing

18% in new barrels, 82% in barrels of 1 to 2 previous wines.

The blend

Merlot (79%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%), Cabernet Franc (7%).

The tasting

The 2020 Château de Sales is probably one of the best vintages ever produced by the estate. Highly pure, powerful and charming, the 2020 Château de Sales demonstrates perfect maturity, balance, freshness and precision up to a very persistent finish. The fruit is tasty and concentrated at the same time, with a silky palate owing, in particular, to very beautifully defined tannins.
