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.
Olivier Dumora uses 1 and 2 year old barrels from Château Prieure-Lichine for the elevage of this wine that punches hard and is a great entry into the Haut-Medoc appellation. The bouquet offers a fabulous rich and raisined black fruit aroma with an overt freshness. The mouthfeel is dense with a crunchy black fruit compote and juicy balance, firm but yielding tannins and a touch of sandalwood on the finish. This wine offers supreme value.
The perfect partner for grilled chops - veal, pork or lamb - especially with herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano.
