Château Simone Description

The Château Simone Rosé is a wine that belies the notion that rosés are simple wines to be drunk up young. We have indulged ourselves with 10-year old Château Simone Rosé and have marveled at the tenacity, vibrancy and complexity of this very serious wine. The blend is identical to the rouge: 45% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, Castet, Manosquin, Carignan, Muscat Noir & Blanc.

Tasting Note: Aged in barrel, it is powerful and age-worthy with a steely character and a grey-tinted aura to the faded rose-petal robe. 

Wine Advocate: 95 Points

A blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, plus 20% mixed "secondary" varieties, including Syrah, Castet, Manosquin, Carignan and various Muscats, all sourced from vines planted on calcareous soils facing north, the 2022 Palette Rose is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Its complex, well-defined bouquet reveals aromas of raspberry, orchard fruit, spring flowers, spices, grapefruit, red berries and an attractive minty top note. Medium to full-bodied with a succulent entry, the wine is perfectly balanced on the palate, with a nicely integrated oak hint and a fleshy core of fruit, followed by a penetrating, mineral, lingering finish. This profound, young rosé represents the essence of the renowned limestone terroir of Palette—a must-have.
