From the very heart of Provence comes this very respected winery "Chateau Simone". Perhaps the most famous Southern French wine, or as it is known in the business: The wine of the Sommeliers! Located in the minuscule appellation of Palette, around the beautiful village of Aix-en-Provence. Those are serious wines, meant to age in the cellars, including the Rosé! It is not a little, light, fresh Rosé to be drunk with whatever seafood and garlic dish comes your way. Indeed this reminds me of the Rosé from the Spanish winery Lopez de Heredia (see my review). This wine is perhaps one of the few Rosés known to benefit from aging. Mostly Grenache and Mourvèdre.

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
