While the label clearly reads Montagne-St Emilion, Domaine Simon Blanchard was founded with an aspiration slightly more Burgundian. The objective? Make the Bordeaux with an emphasis on parcel selections, and by soil type—recording a pure, site-specific, unblended vintage of each block, year by year.
Simon Blanchard is among the brighter lights of Bordeaux’s New Wave. Collectors take note: Incredibly small quantities are produced, and fewer still imported to the United States.
