In a superb ‘vintage of the century’ like 2009 the second wines of top Bordeaux estates are a very smart buy. Crafted by Christian Moueix – the genius behind Château Pétrus and Decanter’s ‘Man of the Year’ 2008 – this claret is opulent and fine.
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. It is a great value Pomerol and the special project of Pomerol’s leading light, Christian Moueix. Like the wines of Château de Sales, those of Chantalouette are supple and full bodied, but are for drinking earlier. This wine was aged for 18 months in oak for toasty complexity and bottled with only a light filtration to preserve its rich texture. It’ll make an impressive partner to roast red meats, a rich venison or beef stew or mature Cheddar. To enjoy at its best, decant a couple of hours before serving to allow it to breathe.
"What a treat! Gorgeous, ripe Pomerol from a 5-Star vintage and with eight years’ age"
