Château Haut-Simard 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is fruity and offers power as well as a slight concentration. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, small wild berries associated with small touches of cassis, violet, lily as well as discreet hints of licorice, blond tobacco and an imperceptible touch of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a small mineral frame, a slight acidity, as well as a very slight tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh / juicy cassis, ripe blackberry associated with small touches of small berries, violet, rose as well as discreet hints of small juicy red berries, Zan and discreet hints of spices. Tannins are well-built, fine and very slightly tight and firm. Good length.
