The nose of this red wine from Bordeaux charms with nuances of mulberry, blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. If we trace the aromatics further, oak, Mediterranean herbs and garrigue are added, encouraged by the oak influence.
On the palate, Chateau Lestage Simon's Bordeaux Haut Medoc starts out wonderfully dry, grippy and aromatic. On the tongue, this punchy red wine features an immensely fleshy texture. The finale of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region Bordeaux, more precisely from Haut-Médoc, captivates finally with considerable reverberation.
The powerful Bordeaux Haut Medoc from France is a cuvée, made from the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. When perfectly ripe, the grapes for the Bordeaux Haut Medoc are harvested particularly quickly and at the coolest possible time of day to preserve their aromas. After the hand harvest, the grapes arrive quickly at the winery. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks and small wood at controlled temperatures. The vinification is followed by a maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off.

In the glass, the Bordeaux Haut Medoc of Chateau Lestage Simon presents a dense purple color. After the first swirl, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which shows in strong church windows at the edge of the glass.
It is perfect as an accompaniment to braised chicken in red wine, roast calf's liver with apples, onions and balsamic vinegar sauce or duck breast with sugar snap peas.
