A Bordeaux blend from the St. Emilion region, this Chateau Simard is a Grand Cru red wine with a silky texture, a gentle bouquet, and a juicy palate.

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Chateau Simard is a silky red wine made with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, with an ABV of 13.5%. It has a wonderful bouquet, gently floral, with aromas of dark fruits, green pepper, and hints of cocoa and earth. Juicy on the palate, it gives flavors of plum, with hints of cocoa, coffee, and berry.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Enjoy the Chateau Simard Saint-Emilion Grand Cru with hearty meat dishes, like steak, grilled lamb, or roast pork. Poultry is also a good pairing, as with roast chicken and roast duck. It’s also good to enjoy with spicy food, or hearty Asian dishes, as well as tomato-based pastas.

A LEGENDARY HISTORY

Chateau Simard is a region that dates back to around the 1700’s. Named for one of its previous owners, Count Simard, it used to be a much larger vineyard. But in an effort to expand the St. Emilion wine trade, a railroad was put up, running through the appellation. As it turned out, the tracks cut through the Simard vineyard, splitting it in half. The solution was to make new wine from the other vineyard—Chateau Haut Simard.

Chateau Simard is now owned by Alain Vautheir, a direct descendant of Claude Maziere. The Mazieres bought Simard in the 1920s, and Claude managed it from 1954. Alain Vautheir and his daughter, Pauline, now manage both Chateau Simard and Chateau Haut Simard.

Storage Instructions

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
