Chateau de Sales Jéroboam 2011

Member Review by Tom Wandeloski:

A 2009 Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from Brodeaux, France. Good Ruby-red color with tight rim variation. Dark fruits hints of cherry and blackberry with a mid-finish on the palette and balanced acidity. This wine will mature nicely over time. Best served chilled to 60 degrees, double decanted and served with a mid-rare lamb dish.

Château de Sales is the largest wine estate in the Pomerol appellation in France, with a total surface area of 90 hectares. The winery is centered around a 17th century château, with a tasting room and picturesque bamboo gardens. It is named for François Sauvanelle, “Lord of Sales,” who constructed it with his son Jean. Wine production began there in earnest in the late 19th century, and once again throughout the recovery period following the blights of Phylloxera and oidium. More recognition of the wines came in the mid 1940s when the estate was under the direction of Henri de Lambert. Today, his descendants continue to run the operation, overseen by chief winemaker Bruno de Lambert.  Read less

Black cherry, earth, and hint of medicine on the nose. Cherries and smooth tannin on the palate with a spicy finish. Drinkable.

Rich,sweet, cooked stone fruit. Just a hint of Bordeaux-character cedar and tobacco. Drinking now, will not run much longer.

Bright red-ruby. Perfumed nose of sour red cherry violet and bitter chocolate reminded me of Burgundy. Pliant and very fresh with good fleshiness for this wine. The suave tannins are nicely supported by the wine s mid-palate stuffing. This very gentle wine suggests a well-judged extraction. This will drink well early and should be a Pomerol bargain especially on a restaurant list. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
