2020 Château de Sales  (Pomerol) 91

Flowers, licorice, roasted plums, cherries, coffee bean and cocoa on the nose create the perfume. Medium-bodied, soft, fresh and vivacious, the elegant wine offers loads of ripe, red pit fruits with bitter chocolate in the finish. This is the best vintage of Chateau de Sales I have ever tasted. 90-92 Pts

2016 Château de Sales  (Pomerol) 88

Medium bodied, fresh, bright, but not quite crisp, the focus on the light, red fruits, with just a bit of earth for complexity. This is not very deep, but there is just enough here to please folks yearning for older, classic styles of Pomerol. This is probably the best vintage from de Sales, I recall tasting. 88 Points

2009 Château de Sales  (Pomerol) 83

From the largest vineyard in Pomerol, the wine is lean with some green character in the spicy, red berry finish. This needs to be drunk on the young side. 83 Points

2006 Château de Sales  (Pomerol) 84

Light, bright and leaning to the red, tart berry side, the wine is more interesting on the earthy, floral, slanted cherry nose, than on the light red fruit palate. This is not a wine I would hold for evolution. 84 Points
