Château de Sours
“Probably the greatest rosé in the world” – Auberon Waugh on Château de Sours Rosé
It was the late Auberon Waugh, for many years the author of The Spectator Wine Club, who first put Château de Sours Rosé on the map with UK wine drinkers and we are delighted to be the Château's principal UK agent today.
Château de Sours sits high up on a limestone and clay plateau, to the south west of Pomerol and faces the famous medieval town of St Emilion. With some 50 hectares of vineyards planted with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the château is able to make a range of wines for different entertaining requirements. The fruit from the oldest vines with the finest situation goes to make a small quantity of La Source, Rouge and Blanc each year. The younger vines’ fruit is used to make Château de Sours Blanc, Rouge and Rosé and they also make a second label, Château Richemont.
Owner Martin Krajewski first became involved with the property as a shareholder in 1997, bought it outright in 2004 and has since made it his home.
You might also be interested to note that we usually offer the new vintage of Château de Sours Rosé En Primeur in February/March. This allows our customers to buy the wine, prior to bottling at a special opening price which usually equates to a saving on the eventual list price of over 15%.
