Château de Sales is in the hands of the 25th generation of Famille de Lambert which has run this property for 550 years. Today they are assisted by Jean-Claude Berrouet, of Petrus fame, and Gilles Rey, ex Château Mouton Rothchild. I am delighted to have Château de Sales on our shelves and we start with the 2008 vintage which is ready to drink!
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
Grenache comes to the fore, a super balance of fruit and spice. Fennel comes out with jammy red berries and spice. A lovely Chateauneuf du Pape from this great producer....
"Oyster shells, a little smoke and then lemon coming out. A nice, well balanced palate, good acidity, easy and with a hint of baked apple on the finish. Good"
