Chateau Simard Saint-Emilion 1998

Bordeaux Red Blends from St-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

Price: $36.99
Item No. 95014

Winemaker's Notes

Released commercially with at least ten years of bottle age, Chateau Simard is a fine and supple wine due to the combination of sandy, gravelly soils with rigorous grape selection.

Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel and concrete vats. Traditional racking and fining. Bottled at the château. Château Simard's classically elegant, refined style results not only from its fine vineyard location, but also from the number of years the wine spends in bottle. It is never released until a least a decade after the vintage date. The complexity and nuance of the fragrance, the gentleness and finesse of the flavors are immediately apparent.

An equally good choice for beef, lamb, roast duck and composed dishes like risotto. The perfect accompaniment to a wide range of cheeses.

I had this bottle at Morton's in NYC. It was a little light in the beginning but it opened up later. It did not overpower our steak at all. Good choice if you want French wine with your American beef!
