WINERY Chateau Semeillan
RRP 50

A mature, earthy red Bordeaux from Listrac-Medoc. Light jammy plum, black fruit and cedar aromas have more succulent appeal and less rustic qualities than many. The palate is dry and savoury with firm tannins. (Cork; 13 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? Drink over two years.

Food ideas Braised lamb; roast chicken.
