Chateau de Sours – Affordable 2010 Bordeaux

17-Jul-2012

Meeting new Bordeaux landowner and winemaker Martin Krajewski in November last year, I was taken by his contemporary approach to making wine in the traditional backwaters of the Entre-Deux-Mers district with his wines from his 85 ha Ch. de Sours property. (Click here to see my report.) Though 15% of the estate is planted to whites, red wine is the focus of production. The red varieties are planted in the proportions 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. The winemaking team is headed by Valerie Valmy, and three tiers of wine made, starting at Richemont de Ch. de Sours, the main Ch. de Sours label, and the limited production ‘La Source' wine. The 2010 vintage wines are now coming available and one can get a taste of this outstanding Bordeaux vintage at affordable prices with the Ch. de Sours wines. www.chateaudesours.com The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Vintners N.Z. Ltd. www.vintners.co.nz
