Wine Advocate: The 2015 Château de Sales offers light, earthy black and red fruit on the nose, not overly complex, but clean and with none of the under-ripeness that occasionally afflicts this property's wines. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin but sufficient, lightly spiced red berry fruit. There is just a touch of hardness on the finish, but that will fall away by the time of bottling. 86 - 88 Points

Vineyard Notes
All efforts are being made to develop a great Pomerol growing, controlled yields, manual harvesting and specific husbandry, barely 6 months in oak barrels of which only 5% new, to preserve the freshness of the fruit and the flexibility of a wooded often found useless by the owner. Where a fleshy and juicy nectar which can be enjoyed in its early years.
