CHÂTEAU HAUT SIMARD 2016 AC Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
NEW in Vintages. This blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc has a deep intense purple colour. There is a lots of class on the still-youthful, ripe, plummy nose which has some faintly earthy, attractive, auumnal forest floor notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, somewhat spicy, bright, intense, ripe plum fruit flavours with a lingering, gently complex, slightly nutty, blueberry-tinged, faintly cedary finish. It as 14% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L! on the back label. It will improve with another 5+ years of aging. CSPC 31706

TASTING NOTE: Made up of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Haut-Simard has a deep garnet-purple color and delivers a hedonistic nose of plum preserves, Black Forest cake and wild blueberries with touches of baking spices, dark chocolate and roses. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers intense black fruits and spice layers without heaviness, framed by firm, finely grained tannins and finishing on a lingering peppery note. Drink date: 2019-2033.
