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.

Wine SpectatorAromas of earth, spices and meat follow through to a full body, with juicy fruit and bright acidity. Tangy and fruity.

Wine Enthusiast87-89 Barrel sample. Good structure, attractive smoky fruit with bright acidity, over solid firm tannins.

Wine AdvocateA straightforward, somewhat angular and relatively malnourished St.-Emilion, this wine should be drunk up over the near-term, before it dries out.

Robert Parker, February 2012
