Tasting Notes : Chateau Simian, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007

Chateau Simian, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007

This small domaine is run by Jean-Pierre Serguier, and produces some of the most attractive Chateauneuf-du-Pape I have come accross recently.
Beautiful aromas on the nose of leather, toasted wood and dark berries. On the palate, the concentration is great with balanced tannins (even though the wine is super young!) and acidity. The alcohol is high, but does not over shadow the finesse and softness of the wine. The length is long with a beautiful silky texture. A must try!
