A lavish, no-expense-spared Pomerol from the exceptional 2020 vintage. Crafted by Jean Claude Berrouet – the genius behind Château Pétrus for 44 years – this claret is opulent, rich on fruit with firm, yet silky tannins to enable it to age.
It means reserving the latest vintage before it is bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK up to 18 months after being reserved, depending on the region.
The advantages of ‘En Primeur’ buying
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines – providing you are quick!
How does payment work?
Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty – around £2.23 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).
After placing your order we will sent you a Reservation Certificate to your billing address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
Beyond the Label
Silky, elegant, lush fruit with firm tannins. Long
Robert Parker, America’s foremost wine critic, writes: “Pomerol produces some of the most expensive, exhilarating and glamorous wines in the world.” Château Chantalouette is the second wine of Château de Sales and both have been owned by same family since 1464. Chantalouette is known for being a good value Pomerol, and the special project of Pomerol’s leading light, Christian Moueix. He brought in Gilles Rey (who also supervises at Mouton Rothschild) to mastermind the vineyards and Jean Claude Berrouet as consultant in the cellar. The wines of Chantalouette are supple and full bodied, good for early drinking, but will cellar well too. 18 months en barriques lends extra complexity, while a light filtration preserves its rich texture.
"This luxurious Pomerol lives up to this appellation's virtuoso reputation - seductively delicious"
