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.
