1982 de Sales, Pomerol

SKU #951441

Pomerol produces some of the sexiest wines in all of Bordeaux. Chateau de Sales is the largest vineyard in Pomerol, the wines described by Robert Parker as "... prized for their sheer, supple, glossy, round, generous, ripe fruitiness and lush, silky personalities. De Sales has always made good wine, but the recent vintages have been particularly strong." Writing about the 1982 de Sales in December 1995, Robert Parker said: "This wine has lasted far longer than I would have guessed. It has always been a tasty, mocha, root beer, and cherry-scented and flavored wine with medium body, a silky texture, and good fruit and flesh. It has taken on considerable amber at the edge and is just beginning to turn the corner and dry out. Drink it up. Tasted 13 times since bottling with consistent notes."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
