Wine Region: Provence - France

Grape: Grenache 45%, mourvèdre 30%, cinsault 5%, merlot 20%.

Tasting notes: These rose winee is nervous with a strong colour and is well known for its body, freshness and the delicacy of its aromas. A dark garnet color marks this distinctive rosé right away, while the core of pomegranate, blood orange and cherry fruit bursts forth. Has a brisk tobacco streak in the background and rather rambunctious acidity coursing through the finish.

About the winery: This historic estate, situated in the hills just south of Aix-en-Provence, has been in the hands of the Rougier family for two centuries and holds a virtual monopoly on the appellation of Palette. 

Chateau Simone encompasses twenty hectares of vineyards that sit on limestone soils at elevations between 500 and 750 feet above sea level on the slopes of Montaiguet. The special microclimate of this appellation is influenced by the encircling pine forests, the mass of Mont Sainte-Victoire, and the Arc River. The vineyards were reconstituted after the invasion of phylloxera and many vines are over a century old. The Rougiers maintain the particular vinification methods developed and cherished over many decades. For those of you who are not familiar with these wines, whether rouge, blanc or rosé, we believe you will find them to be compelling and unique.

All of the grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, lightly pressed and fermented for 15 to 20 days in small wooden vats with only wild yeast, then put into small foudre to rest on the lees. The white is predominantly Clairette, with small amounts of Grenache Blanc and Ugni Blanc, and a dash of Bourboulenc, Muscat Blanc, Picpoul, Furmint and Semillon.
