Chateau de Sales

With 47 hectares, this is Pomerol’s largest property and it has been in the de Lambert family since the 15th century. Here, in the north-western corner of Pomerol, it is warm enough for Cabernet to ripen and this adds some structure and grip to the wines. Little new oak is used and the wines are never too extracted. Chantalouette is the highly approachable second wine.
