- Options available
Ripe and densely textured, this is a plush, full-bodied wine. With swathes of rich black fruits and some firm tannins, it has good potential. The richness contrasts with the black-currant acidity that gives this otherwise dense wine a bright, crisp aftertaste.
Chateau Lestage Simon is a lovely embodiment of a Cru Bourgeois. Located at Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, which is beside the great vineyard of Saint-Estephe, this profits from an outstanding terroir which is complex and diverse, and whose uniqueness is the basis of the chateau’s wines. The situation of the vines vary considerably. Some grapes are grown on sandy soils along the riverbank, others from limestone and clay-limestone soils further inland. The Chateau produces a supple Haut-Medoc, whose structure, richness, and balance create excellent cellaring potential. Normally a blend comprising 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
