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.

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • I’m so glad I found this tasting happening at my work's social clubhouse because my intended attendance at the trade tasting didn’t eventuate. I’m gutted that I missed out on the chance to taste the 2001 Cuvee Madame. I’ll have to dig deep into the pockets for a glass now, thank goodness for tax returns time! I had previously provided an introdu... Read More

  • For March, my tasting group explored the length of the Rhône valley.  Probably for consistency of quality, one of our best tastings to date with just about all o the wines showing well and being universally liked by all.  I was lucky to find/have access to some older vintages from estate sales and store cellars, so it made for a fun night.  Here...

  • Saw this story about Antonio Galloni leaving the Wine Advocate.  (I first saw it somewhere else, but this was the easiest one to link to today.)  I haven't got any particular sense of what Galloni likes, although one kind of assumes that Parker would hire someone somewhat in his own image if he was planning to turn over some of the areas Bob has...

  • Château de Sales Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More
