The marc is taken out of the vats after fermentation or special rolling belts to preserve quality. We use a pneumatic press for this stage. Average time for fermentation is 20 to 22 days.

Tasting Notes
- "Decanter World Wine Award – Recommandé "
"Avec une robe grenat très soutenue aux nuances violettes, et un nez complexe, fruité et épicé, offrant de délicieux arômes de café, de pruneau et de poivre, il nous montre son potentiel de grand vin de garde. En bouche il se révèle ample, équilibré et persistant, avec de belles notes de fruits noirs, de vanille et de caramel."
- Consultant Michel Rolland
2010 was an amazing year, with optimal climatic conditions, which gave Bordeaux one of the best vintage of the last ten years. Château Lestage Simon knew how to take advantage of it and offers us a wine of exception. With a beautiful and intense garnet-red color with shades of violet, and a fruity and spicy nose with delicious coffee, prune and pepper aromas, this 2010 shows us its ability to age

The arrival to the cellar of my first harvest in 2009

One word to describe my wine
Elegance

The history of the Château
"The true image of the great Cru Bourgeois, Château Lestage Simon, in Saint Seurin de Cadourne, a neighbour of the great vineyards of Saint-Estèphe, draws the quintessence of its 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, suggesting an excellent cellaring potential."
