Simard St Emilion 2005 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Château Simard has an enviable address on the sunny southern slopes of Saint-Émilion. Surrounded by the region’s first growth vineyards, Château Simard’s vineyard has excellent exposure and predominantly clay soil mixed with sand and gravel. Château Simard’s classical, refined style can be attributed not only to its fine vineyard location, but also to its traditional winemaking practices and distinctive aging program. The blend each year reflects the vineyard’s makeup of Merlot blended with Cabernet Franc. Elegant and balanced upon release, Château Simard expresses its deep roots in Bordeaux’s famous Right Bank. The estate’s ownership changed in 2008, when it was purchased by Alain Vaulthier of Chateau Ausone.
