The terroir of the Palette appellation is located on the lake limestones of Langesse and Montaiguet. The Palette vineyard is found only on soils made uniform with limestone scree, that is to say on skeletal soils of little thickness and stony. It is protected from northerly winds by the Langesse and Grand Cabri hills, but by the Arc Valley it is subject to westerly / northwesterly winds. Exposure mainly to the north almost always requires late harvests.
45% grenache noir, 30% mourvèdre, 5% cinsault, "secondary" grape 20% (including syrah, castet, manosquin, carignan, various muscats).
Vines over 50 years old (some plots are over a hundred years old).
Even in a hot vintage, the Grenaches dominating this cuvée retain a cold austerity due to their northern exposure. The wine will evolve with ashy nuances and will shine with the slender vigor of its tannins. Beautiful bouquet of garrigue on the finish. Cut for the guard.
Elegance, a complex and tannic bouquet, a rich and structured material, depth make Château Simone in the Palette appellation, an exceptional wine with very good aging potential.
A very great red from Provence!
