Château Semonlon, Haut-Médoc 2015
This has lovely, soft Merlot fruit with ripe tannins and red berry fruit flavours on the palate. Elegant and soft with wonderful juicy character. From an estate near Margaux, this is great value.

Here is a wine which is only just drinking, so you must decant it if you would like to taste it right away. Great value 2015s are thin on the ground these days so please consider going in deep with Semonlon because it has a further five glorious years ahead of it. With the silhouette of a much pricier wine, this estate is the proud owner of some old vines planted on gravel soils, in Avensan, a small hamlet not far from Margaux. The blend is approximately 50% Cabernet / 50% Merlot and in 2015 both grapes performed at the top of their game.
