Ch. de Sours Bordeaux 2009

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 03-Nov-2011
100% Merlot aged 12 months in 30% new oak. Very full, even near saturated black-red colour. The nose is elegant and tightly bound, showing dark red berry fruits, tobacco and earth and spicy, cedary oak that develop in the glass. Medium-full bodied at 13.5% alc, this is tightly constructed with density and concentration. Though shy, densely packed dark plum, toast and spice flavours unfold. The palate features real line and a lingering, sustained finish that reveals more oak spice and toastiness. This will evolve over the next 5-7+ years. Serve with lamb and beef, as well as aged hard cheeses. 18.0+/20 Nov 2011 RRP $31.95
