Château-de-Sales Pomerol 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pomerol|
Station Plaza Wine
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 De Sales rocks up with expressive blackberries and black cherries notes with an undercurrent of tilled soil, truffles and mossy bark. Medium to full-bodied, it has a solid structure of ripe, rounded tannins and impressive freshness, finishing with bright black fruit layers.
A linear and fine-grained red with medium body, ripe fruit and cedar and chocolate undertones. Very fine and pretty.
“There is no question that this is an excellent vintage at de Sales, with lots of changes at this estate all benefitting the wine.” - Decanter “Vincent Montigaud (ex Mouton through Domaine de Baronarques) has done a good job.” - Decanter
Silky and refined in feel, with alluring dark tea, dried anise, mulled plum and steeped black cherry notes gliding through in unison. Bay leaf note twinkles on the finish. Drink now through 2031. 6,800 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
