CHÂTEAU SIMARD 2015 AC Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
This remarkably delicious, well-made, underrated Saint-Emilion is a BEST BUY at only $49.95. Extremely deep intense purple colour. Lovely, slightly spicy, complex, intense, ripe, plum-black-cherry fruit on the nose with some gently cedary, sandalwood notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, harmonious, dense, intense, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, high acid, gently cedary, lifted finish. A well-integrated blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc with 14% alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar with lot number 211019L on the back label. This undervalued classic is now owned by Château Ausone’s proprietor, Alain Vauthier, who acquired Château Simard when his uncle Claude Mazière passed away in 2008. CSPC 12090

TASTING NOTE: This property is owned and managed by the Vauthier family of Château Ausone. The 2015 Simard is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is vibrantly scented of red currants, black cherries and warm plums with hints of violets and fragrant earth.
