Château Simone Palette Rosé 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This wine might be worth purchasing simply for its color, an eye-catching, neon pomegranate. The nose offers beautiful, complex dried fruit notes, while the palate is rich and intense with the structure of a red wine. A serious Rosé guaranteed to surprise and amaze... also to age.

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

This wine might be worth purchasing simply for its color: an eye-catching neon pomegranate. The nose offers beautiful, complex dried-fruit notes, while the palate is rich and intense, with the structure of a red wine. A surprising, amazing, serious, and age-worthy rosé.
