This vintage shows the classical characteristics of Saint Emilion, with plum, cherry, bramble fruit and tobacco. Medium bodied, the soft textured tannins are still present in good measure and well balanced with the acidity that brings to a persistent finish. Best 2016–2026
Château Simard produces only one wine. It is classically elegant, with a refined style that results not only from the excellent vineyard location, but also from traditional winemaking methods employed at the château and the number of years the wine is aged in the cellars.
Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
