Chateau Simard Saint Emilion 2005 750ml
- Bordeaux Blend
This Bordeaux offering is from the stellar 2005 vintage. It is made from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. The bottle age here is showing beautifully. Elegant and earthy, with notes of dark fruit and forest floor. This is a rare chance to try aged Bordeaux for a reasonable price.
Brilliant ruby color with some brick notes.The nose has hints of berries, violets and earth. In the mouth, flavors of cassis, black cherry and plum expand within a good, round structure; medium length and plenty of aging potential. This wine can be enjoyed with red meats, stews and grillade. It is well aged and ready for drinking.
