Winemaker's Notes:

A vibrant, Merlot blend with complexity and rich aromas of leather, hints of menthol, vanilla, cinnamon and spicse. On the palate this ripe, lush Merlot shines with intense, fine, juicy fruit flavors of blackcurrants and raspberries with velvety tannins, leading to a seductively long and dry finish.

About Chateau de Sours:

Situated high up on a commanding limestone plateau just to the south-west of Pomerol and facing St. Emilion, Château de Sours has been producing wine for more than 200 years. Dating back to the 14th century, it originally served as an inn on the St. Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimage route to Spain. The current house was built in 1792, and has since been renovated and restored to its former glory by proprietors Martin and Nicolette Krajewski. Under their leadership, Château de Sours has undergone a massive refurbishment, blending the region's traditional rigor and craftsmanship with modern innovations. Château de Sours is producing some of Bordeaux's most respected red and white wines, and is leading a renewed global interest in top class rosé.
