Chateau Chantalouette Pomerol 2015
Ch?teau Chantalouette is the second wine of Ch?teau de Sales. Owned by the same family for over five centuries, the 116 acre estate is the largest in the appellation and boasts the only true castle of Pomerol.
The vineyards here are composed of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon on small gravel and iron-rich loess.
Vinification is managed delicately, leading to beautifully crafted wines that are expressive of their terroir. Traditional racking and light egg-white fining help to preserve the brightness of the fruit.
Chantalouette is named after one of the larger parcels constituting the vineyard of Ch?teau de Sales. The wine is charming, round, elegant, and approachable from a young age.
