Chateau Chantalouette Pomerol 2014

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Belgravia [www.majestic.com] for £20. The Pomerol appellation was created in 1936.although winemaking here goes back to at least medieval times,for red wines from the commune of that name near the town of Libourne on the right bank of the Bordeaux region. The commune is only about three square miles so it is one of the smaller Bordeaux appellations.I did not realise this when I bought the bottle but Chateau Chantalouette is the name given to the second wine of Chateau de Sales a well known Pomerol producer. It consists of 70% merlot and 15% each of the two cabernets and was aged in oak barrels.I started the bottle the other evening with my supper of roast lamb There is plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit with just a hint of vanilla and some smooth soft and well structured tannins. In short this is a lovely right bank claret.

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.There is a second wine,once called 'Clos de Sales' but now called 'Chateau Chantalouette'  Read less
