The 2015 Simard is an intense, dark wine. The richness and ripeness of the year is very much in evidence in the wine's succulent jammy fruit flavors. Exotic spice, leather and rose petal overtones wrap around the juicy finish. The 2015 looks to be an attractive, early-drinking Simard. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc fermented and aged mostly in concrete, with about 30% oak. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Simard, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, picked between September 21 and October 7, and matured in 30% new oak, has a perfumed, floral bouquet with hints of dried rose petals in between the raspberry coulis and fresh strawberry aromas. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with saturated tannin, crisp acidity, juicy and fresh with a pastille-like purity on the finish. So delicious you could almost drink this now! Often considered at the entry-level wine with Alain Vauthiard's portfolio, this is clearly going to give immense pleasure over the next decade. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

This is very structured and muscular with tight and firm tannins. Full body, bright and lucid. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Very dark purple. Unusually exotically concentrated on the nose. Really very perfumed - violet cachous?! Quite a bit of green on the end. A most unusual wine for which I think you will have to wait. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2035
