2016 Chateau Chantalouette, Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Château Chantalouette is the second wine of Château 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.
Traditional practices in the vineyard, such as horse-ploughing and hand-harvesting, followed by meticulous winemaking, lead to beautifully crafted wines that are expressive of their terroir.
Chantalouette is named after one of the larger parcels constituting the vineyard of Château de Sales.
The wine is charming, round, elegant, and rich with ripe red berry fruit on the nose and notes of spice on the smooth palate.
70% Merlot – 15% Cabernet Franc – 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
