Simonsig's 2015 Avec Chêne is a bit more retrained in its overt woodiness than previous bottlings, with herbal notes of grass and fynbos before fruit tones of green plum and white melon. The fresh and easy palate offers bright acidity and juicy flavors of citrus and apple, framed by spice and toast accents. Well balanced and accessible now, enjoy through 2020.
