"Medium intensity of dark ruby-red color. The aromas are quite dusty & chalky with earthy & reduced dark fruits. The palate is smooth-textured & displays prune & plum fruit. The tannins are soft & smooth with a slight cedary edge. The fruit is very mellow, but there is some chalky tannic grip on the mid palate. The alcohol adds some roundness to the finish which is long & mellow with ripe prune & a classical earthy Pomerol notes. Drinking beautifully now."

This powerful wine with layers of new wood and dense black fruits is setting out for serious aging. It comes from one of the largest estates in Pomerol, less well known than it should be. Drink this wine that has great potential from 2026.

The 2019 Château de Sales has an open-knit bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit, not quite as complex as its peers. The palate is medium-bodied, somewhat old school in style with dry tannins and a structured finish. Fine backbone here, an impressive retro 2019! One of the best vintages in recent years. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

A classic, fresher, elegant Pomerol from the vintage, the 2019 Château De Sales has a ruby hue as well as a pretty nose of red, black, and blue fruits intermixed with sappy herbs, flowers, and cedar pencil. Medium-bodied, elegant, very pretty, and lightly textured, I love its purity of fruit as well as its balance, although I'd like to have seen a touch more richness and depth. Drink bottles over the coming 10-12 years.
