Chateau de Sours Bordeaux Rosé 2010

Chateau de Sours is located near Libourne and Pomerol, sitting atop a limestone plateau providing free-draining soils.  With a heritage stretching back 200 years, wines such as this are leading a resurgence of interest for Bordeaux Rosé.

Delicate berry perfume, a hint of strawberries and cream.  Entry shows a wine somewhat light-on, there's textural interest, but it works as a rather easy drinking and lightly fruited style - pairing rather nicely with a small goods tray.  Dry - naturally - with spice through the finish, which adds further interest through length.  90 - Good
