Chateau de Sours Bordeaux Rouge

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This red blend from Bordeaux is excellent value for a French wine, especially if you are looking for something that is smooth, easy going, and great to match with a range of food. Smells of plums, ripe red fruits, tobacco leaf and subtle earthiness waft out of the glass, whilst the palate is medium-bodied and quite juicy, with mellow tannins, friendly acidity, and a dry, silky finish. This would be great with everything from beef to game birds.

Winemaker's Notes

Made from 85% merlot, 10% petit verdot and 5% cabernet sauvignon, the fruit for this wine comes from vines situated on the limestone plateau surrounding the Chateau that were picked in late September and early October in perfect sunny conditions.

The colour of the wine is a vibrant deep red to purple with an elegant and complex structure and an attractive richness on the nose with aromas of leather and hints of vanilla, cinnamon and spice.

On the palate the taste is of the ripe and lush merlot with an intensity of fine juice flavours of blackcurrants, raspberries and sherry with a soft attack of fine velvety tannins that lead to a seductively long and dry finish. This is a wine that will continue to develop in a bottle for many years to come and will reward carefuly cellaring.

Drink 2012 to 2020.
