Winemaker's Notes:

Wine is distinguished by great finesse, supple, glossy texture and round, ripe fruitiness. This is a precocious Pomerol that can age well for 10 years after the vintage.
My Notes:

About Chateau de Sales:

Chateau de Sales is the largest estate in the Pomerol appelation and has been owned by the same family for more than five hundred years. Built during the 17th century, the chateau possesses exceptional beauty and elegance; the same is true for its wines. They are the true expression of the marvellous terroir from which they come.

The architecture of Chateau de Sales makes it a remarkable setting. From its tasting room to its bamboo gardens, from its vat house to its wine storehouse, the estate's pure refinement is also found in the "silky" quality that characterizes its wines and those of Pomerol appelation in general.
