Château Semonlon

This property is located in Avensan, a small commune not far from Margaux. It’s vineyards border those of Château Citran. Owned by the Dumora family, whose patrimony spans several generations, its 7 hectares are planted with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 60% Merlot, while the average age of the vines is 35 years. The soil is comprised of muddy gravel, large stones and small amounts of clay. Aged in 1 and 2 year old barrels sourced from the 4th Growth Grand Cru Classe, Château Prieuré-Lichine, this is a great performer in 2015 and offers terrific value. Dark ruby, almost opaque in colour, unctuous, rich and full of flavour. The tannins are perfectly poised, a touch of oak offers an added dimension and finish is beautiful and concentrated.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a deep ruby colour and is full of soft Merlot fruit with ripe tannins and notes of blackcurrant, red and black berries, with a touch of vanilla and spice.

Food Matches

The perfect partner for grilled chops - veal, pork or lamb - especially with herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano.
