Chateau De Sours is a winery that’s located to the southwest of Libourne and Pomerol – facing towards St. Emilion – and has been producing wine for over 200 years. To say they have a long pedigree in making quality wines hardly scratches the surface.
On the nose: A rather muted nose, but I do pick up some blackberry, bramble, forest floor, mushroom, marionberry and a hint of ink.
On the palate: Tart black raspberry, leather strap, a hint of pencil lead, blueberry, white pepper. Good acids and super tight tannins but the fruit is a bit too hidden for my palate. A good food wine because of the acidity but wouldn’t be a daily drinker per se for most wine lovers.
