Winemaker Notes

An attractive, deep ruby red, the wine has a highly complex nose which opens up with airing on notes of black berry fruit such as bilberry and blackberry. Fresh and well-balanced on the palate, it is full-bodied and displays attractively complex flavors, especially black fruit, with a touch of oak. A wine with good ageing potential, its well-integrated and silky tannins give it a remarkable finish.

Blend: 79.5% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.5% Cabernet Franc

About Château de Sales

Built in the 17th century, Château de Sales is largest estate in the Pomerol appellation on the Right Bank. The chateau possesses exceptional beauty and elegance, and the same is true for its wines as they are the true expression of the Pomerol terroir from which they originate. Located in the northwest corner of Pomerol, it is the only true chateau building in the appellation and has been owned by the same family for more than five hundred years. Chateau de Sales wines are the expression of their terroir: fruit-driven, round and full-bodied, with good structure on the palate, smoothness, refinement and elegance.

Located 22 miles east of Bordeaux, the vineyard of Château de Sales is situated in the northwestern part of the Pomerol appellation. The chateau’s vineyard has a surface area of over 200 acres, of which 118 acres are planted — the largest in Pomerol. The soils of Château de Sales are comprised of fine gravel and sand, with clay in some areas and an omnipresence of iron oxide, known as “crasse de fer.”

The vines are an average of more than 30 years old. The grape varieties planted here are typical of this appellation: 73% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 12% cabernet franc. The vines are cultivated in the traditional way: the soil is regularly ploughed, vineyard practices are environmentally sound, leaves are removed with clusters thinned at regular intervals, and the grapes are harvested by hand at optimum maturity for each parcel.
