Château Simone Palette 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The red from Simone is primarily composed of Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault but its special character reflects the presence of at least ten other grape varieties, albeit in small proportion, including syrah, manosquin, carignan, castet, cabernet sauvignon and muscat noir. The 2004 vintage is an elegant yet well-constituted wine of great depth. Bottled after three years of aging in foudres and barriques, it is a classic that deserves to be aged in order to best appreciate its many nuances: plum, pine resin, cinnamon, truffle and spice among other sensations. We invite you to share our pleasure.

Château Simone is a winery that has been in the Rougier family in Meyreuil, in Provence, France, since 1830. But evidence suggests wine grapes have existed on the territory for many previous centuries. The vineyard’s elevation on north-facing slopes of the Montaiguet massif, which is protected by the wind and influenced by the Arc river, lend a distinct microclimate. This coupled with its Tertiary limestone, clay, pebble and gravel soil all contribute to growing well-balanced fruit. Many of the vines on the property are well over 100 years old, thanks to the quick-thinking Rougier family who replanted vines early on in the Phylloxera crisis. The grapes are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The wines are red, white and rosé blends, all different native varieties grown on site.  Read less
