The quintessential Cru Bourgeois, Château Lestage Simon, in Saint Seurin de Cadourne, a neighbor of the great vineyards of Saint-Estèphe, draws from complex and diversified terroir. Here, plots of deep gravels along the river, there, limestone or limestone and clay further inland. It is a supple Haut-Médoc, full-bodied, rich and well balanced with excellent cellaring potential. This property consistently punches well above its weight.

Reviews:

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Lestage Simon features kirsch, black raspberries and cassis with lavender and potpourri notions plus a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied and elegant with a good fruit core and grainy tannins, finishing perfumed." -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This is a dense wine, rich in smoky tones and solidly textured tannins, though it also has a freshness from the black currant acidity. It is a balanced wine that will age well; drink after 2023." -Rated 92, Wine Enthusiast

"Big blackcurrants and a spot-on combination of depth, freshness and elegant tannins make this an exceptional Haut-Médoc. Long, fine-grained, dry finish. Drink or hold." -Rated 93, James Suckling
