Château Simone Palette Rosé, France 2021
This historic estate, situated in the hills just south of Aix-en-Provence, has been in the hands of the Rougier family for two centuries and holds a virtual monopoly on the appellation of Palette. The Château Simone Rosé is a wine that belies the notion that rosés are simple wines to be drunk up young. This Rosé can be put away for aging or enjoyed now over a full-tasting menu, complex and tense, one of the most serious Rosés one can find.
Grapes: 45% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, Castet, Manosquin, Carignan, Muscat Noir & Blanc
Pairing: This Rosé can navigate a menu, with even richer preparations.
