Chateau Simard

With a legacy that dates back to the 17th century, Château Simard is located near the ancient and beautiful town of Saint-Émilion,
home to the Right Bank’s most prestigious estates. Among the most renowned of these is Château Ausone — one of only two
properties classified in 1955 as Saint-Émilion Premiers Grands Crus Classés A. Château Ausone’s proprietor, Alain Vauthier, inherited
Château Simard in 2008 when his uncle, Claude “Coco” Mazière, passed away. The château has been in the family since 1954.
A quintessential Saint-Émilion producer, Château Simard’s vineyard is surrounded by the region’s first-growth vineyards. The
40-hectare (98.84-acre) gently sloping vineyard is marked by predominantly clay soil mixed with sand and gravel, and a deep water
table, forcing the vines to grow far into the ground. It is planted to Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines that average 35 years in age. The
vineyard manager is Laurent Vallet. Pauline Vauthier is the general manager.

Steeped in history, Chateau Simard has long intrigued Bordeaux fans. Originally owned by Count Simard, the vineyard was once a larger parcel. Then in 1870, a railroad track was built in the center of the vineyard, dividing it into two parcels: Chateau Simard and Haut Simard.  Shortly thereafter,
