Chateau Simon, Sauternes – Barsac 1999

80% Sémillon, 18% Sauvignon Blanc 2% Muscadelle

Description

The Dufour family has been cultivating vines and producing Barsac – Sauternes wine at Château Simon since 1814. Bringing with them a wealth of know-how passed down from generation to generation and rich in pioneering spirit, Château Simon now covers 33 hectares in the Barsac – Sauternes, Graves, and Bordeaux appellations. The vineyards are located in the upper part of the village of Barsac on unique clay-limestone soil resting on asteria rock. The grape blend is 80% Sémillon, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. The harvest is done by hand with 4-5 very careful successive selections. Only overripe grapes and bunches (Botrytis Cinéréas) are selected. Winemaking and Aging: The botrytized bunches are gently pressed during the night. After cold settling, the must ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The best lots are selected and aged in oak barrels for 18 months. The production is 26,000 bottles. In the glass, it has a magnificent golden color and develops a very intense nose with a subtle bouquet of exotic fruit and citrus.
