Color: medium darkness, starting to get a little light salmon around the edges. The nose has candied red cherries, warm raspberries and a little mint and cellar musk. Medium body and acidity, tannic. Still bright and alive - try again in 5 years? Some musk. Silky texture, no rough edges. Slightly simple, but hopefully this will evolve a little more earthy leathery flavor. $32
Glue,petrol and blackcurrant on the nose, tabacco, leather on the palette. A long finish, excellent with beef.

External Reviews for Château Simard Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion
Chateau Simard St. Emilion Chateau Simard's classically elegant, refined style results not only from its fine vineyard location, but also from the number of years the wine spends in bottle. It is never released until a least a decade after the vintage date. The complexity and nuance of the fragrance, the gentleness and finesse of the flavors are immediately apparent. An equally good choice for beef, lamb, roast duck and composed dishes like risotto. The perfect accompaniment to a wide range of cheeses.
