Cuvée presentation

It is characterised by its ruby red colour and subtle yet complex aromas. The regional grape varieties grow on slopes of limestone pebbles and are harvested by hand when perfectly ripe. They then ferment with indigenous yeasts and temperature control, before maturing in oak.

Information about domain Château Simone

At the foot of Sainte Victoire, Château Simone is named after one of its former owners, Madame de Simon. It is "the" big name in the Palette appellation, an AOC as small in size as its wines are great in stature, when they are enhanced by the talents of the winemaker. The Rougier family's wines are definitely in this category: they have have watched over the Simone style for nearly two centuries. Vines have been grown here since Roman times; located at an altitude of 200 metres, on a north-facing slope surrounded by forests that protect them from the searing heat of the Provencal summers. The vineyard and winery are managed according to traditional methods, and the wine is aged in a series of multi-level vaults that were carved out of the rock by the Grands Carmes d'Aix monks in the 16th century. The property consists of 23 hectares, planted with clairette, grenache, ugni and muscat for the whites, and with grenache, mourvèdre, syrah and cinsault for the reds. Note that there are also some very rare typically Provencal grape varieties such as manosquin and castet. The property produces wines in all three colours.
