The 1998 Chateau Simard presents a classic profile of a mature Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, offering a savory bouquet with hints of red fruits, earthiness, leather, and tobacco. With a moderate alcohol content of 13.5%, this wine balances its dry character with a structured body and a complex flavor profile.

It pairs exceptionally well with hearty dishes such as roasted lamb, grilled steak, mushroom risotto, and aged cheeses.
