Unluckily 2 bts of 2004 corked in a raw... I love this wine, but obviously it was not a good experience

Finessed and a bit smokey with exotic aromas; notes of lime blossoms, almonds, orange peel

Completely puzzled blind. Lovely breadth contrasts with snappy acidity. Botrytis noes of apricots and honey. Sweet impression. Exotic for me.

Fragrant like only Simone can be. Yellow fruits, gras, sense of richness. Super mineral and hay like aromas. Balanced, textured, rich and so long. Super texture. Texture and length stars of the day

Slightly oxidative, but still fresh. A really cool wine that keeps changing in the glass. Not your typical east drinking white, more something you want to contemplate.

Gorgeous. Provence meets Lopez de heredia and then invites some old hunter valley Semillon to the party. Or, just chateau Simone being chateau Simone.
