Review: 2010 Chateau De Sours Red Wine

By Duane Pemberton
Winery website: http://www.chateaudesours.com/
Price: $15

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.

Chateau De Sours

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.

W.E.P. Rating: 90%

    Hey Duane – the de Sours wines can take some time to open up. Not sure when you tasted it, but if it was recently (ie past couple of days), take another look and let us know what you think. Thanks, Shae
