Château Simard Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Released commercially with at least ten years of bottle age, Chateau Simard is a fine and supple wine due to the combination of sandy, gravelly soils with rigorous grape selection. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel and concrete vats. Traditional racking and fining. Bottled at the château. Château 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.

Lean and yellow - not unlike a Rioja, but with more of that subtle Bordeaux wet wool. Currants and pepper with a nice surprisingly long thundery finish.

I always love these aged opportunities at this price point. Enjoyed with friends over a barbequed filet dinner. Nice balance with long finish. Not great with all the wine flavors, but everyone enjoyed it. Low alcohol as well.
