The dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by loads of cassis and cherry jam notes intermixed with hints of licorice, incense, roasted herbs and underbrush. Full, fleshy and already irresistible, this 2011 should drink well for a decade. One of the finest Simards made in many years, this estate has gotten serious now that proprietor Alain Vauthier is overseeing the winemaking. From a well-placed vineyard planted in decomposed limestone below Pavie, this sleeper of the vintage is a St.-Emilion fruit bomb.

Vinous

Bright medium ruby. Fresh aromas of red cherry, strawberry, flowers and milk chocolate. Juicy and pure, with fresh, easygoing flavors of red cherry, herbs and bitter chocolate. Nicely balanced wine with good structure and a perfumed, persistent finish.

James Suckling

A wine with plum, berry and cherry character. Medium body with integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Better after 2015.
