Château Simone

Grand Cru de Provence Red Blend 2012

Holly decided to make cassoulet so this seemed like it would be a fitting compliment. Well, I’m here to confirm that the pairing was sublime. I poured this into the decanter about three hours prior to the meal and it probably could have benefited from even more air as it continued to improve in the glass. Red fruits and Herbs de Provence on the nose. On the palate it was crunchy red fruits, minerals and spices. Years to go. Drink with patience or hold. — 5 days ago

Just a pleasure to drink. So much going on. Reminds me of one of my all time favorites a 1996 Crozes Hermitage made for the millennium. Started with some menthol then went to sweet cherries and leather. — 4 days ago

Don’t let the light color fool you. This has some weight to it. A little watermelon on the backside and some grapefruit and unripe peach up front. Very cool wine. — 3 days ago

Reminds me more of a Burgundy than last nights Hauvette. Much more on the earthy side but it has just been opened. — 3 days ago
