2005 Château Simard, Saint-Emilion

This is perfectly drinking claret, from a great vintage, and released direct from the Château's cellars. There's still a core of bright, ripe fruit, but with all those developed elements you'd expect from aged Right Bank Bordeaux: clove, leather, dried fruit and store cupboard spice. Impressively long for a wine of this price, it's what ageing Bordeaux's all about.

SOLD OUT. Check back later for more stock or call us on 01473 313 300.
