Chateau Simard St. Emilion 2015 Red French Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Wine Advocate 91 points – This property is owned and managed by the Vauthier family of Chateau 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. Medium-bodied, very fine, fruity and elegant with ripe, fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, it finishes with a red cherry lift.
James Suckling 91 points – Lots of oranges and lemons with blackberry and dark-earth character. Full-bodied, round, juicy and silky. Delicious and soft. A gorgeous wine. 80% merlot. Drink now or hold.
