Ch. de Sales Pomerol Bordeaux
One of the largest estates in Pomerol, Chateau de Sales carries the additional distinction of being under the same family ownership since its founding in the 1400s. It is a sprawling piece of land, with just half of its 90 hectares planted with vines, roughly seventy percent of which is Merlot (rounded out with Cabernet, both Sauvignon and Franc). A harmonious connection between the gravel-laden and sandy soils, along with centuries of experience and heritage, yield a richness that surrounds dark-red fruits, tobacco, cedar, and moderate acidity that will help this beauty of the right-bank age for years to come.
