Located on the left bank of the Dordogne, the limestone plateau of Château de Sours faces the famous limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion.
Château de Sours’ vineyard covers 80 hectares and consists of three main soil types.
The red wines come from vines planted at high density on a thin layer of clay that rests on a limestone flagstone of Asteries.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot which composing the blend, find in this soil an optimal ripeness cycle which gives them a concentration and an inimitable freshness.
Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc used for the white wines are grown on cooler clay-limestone soils, essential for the production of wines with delicate aromas and mineral and tense structure. The Cabernets Francs and Merlots that make up our sparkling rosé wine, are located on clayey-silty hillsides exposed to north, to obtain a fresher maturity necessary for the production of a great “Méthode traditionnelle”.
