Château Haut-Simard 2011, Saint-Émilion ( Magnum )
Dark fruits and full-bodied flavour profile
Made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes, which are grown on the estate's vineyards located on the right bank of the Dordogne river.
It has a deep ruby color and an aroma of dark fruits, including blackberry, blackcurrant, and plum, along with notes of spices, vanilla, and leather. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich, with flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, and tobacco, along with a hint of minerality and a well-balanced acidity. The tannins are firm and well-structured, giving the wine a good aging potential. It has a complex and elegant character, with a good balance between fruitiness and tannins.
Best enjoyed with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or strong cheeses. It can also be aged for several years to develop more complexity and nuances.
