1999 Lestage Simon, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1400701

Chateau Lestage Simon is a lovely embodiment of a Cru Bourgeois. Located at Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, which is beside the great vineyard of Saint-Estephe, this profits from an outstanding terroir which is complex and diverse, and whose uniqueness is the basis of the chateau’s wines. The situation of the vines vary considerably. Some grapes are grown on sandy soils along the riverbank, others from limestone and clay-limestone soils further inland. The Chateau produces a supple Haut-Medoc, whose structure, richness, and balance create excellent cellaring potential.

Over 20 years old and so delicious. These 99s are showing so good right now. Chateau Lestage Simon is a lovely embodiment of a Cru Bourgeois. Located at Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, which is beside the great vineyard of Saint-Estephe, this profits from an outstanding terroir which is complex and diverse, and whose uniqueness is the basis of the chateau’s wines. This wine is elegant and fruity with Merlot showing through. Gary Westby blogged it last year and bought a case on the spot. Clyde tasted it again (march 22, 2020) and it is better than i first thought-perfect with a new york steak dinner. This property is known to make big and tannic wines, but the softness of the vintage, the ripeness of the Merlot, and the 20+ years ageing in the properties cellar, makes this wine superb right out of the bottle. Some black fruit flavors and very round, sweet tannins. Fabulous value to drink now and for a few more years.

This Friday, Cinnamon and I enjoyed a bottle of the newly arrived 1999 Lestage Simon, Haut-Médoc with our steak. Saturday morning, I bought myself a case. This wine, like the best of the 1999’s has wonderful, fresh, dark fruit which is still going strong 20 years after the harvest. To go along with this beautiful fruit, this wine is framed by subtle earthiness and also has the texture that only decades of patience can bring. It has become quite silky and the tannins are full integrated. The alcohol is low on this Haut-Médoc, coming in at a classic, old school 12.5%. This means a lot to me, because I have to work on Saturdays, and I like to drink more than one glass of Bordeaux with my steak on Friday night! Perhaps my favorite thing about this wine is how it combines dark fruit and texture with a lifted and bright finish. It provides the kind of refreshment that I love when having a juicy New York steak like the one I had with it.
Drink from 2019 to 2026

There's nothing not to like about this aged Bordeaux for under $25! It's got lovely savory red fruit, hints of leather and spice and great acidity to cut through that ribeye that pairs perfectly with it. No need to age this one, it is in a perfect spot right now.
