Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Candied apricot, ginger and melted butter: these are the greedy fragrances released by this straw-colored wine. Its attack is complex: it allies roundness and greediness as well as finesse. Mineral notes are mixing with a taste of yellow fruits and spices. The finish is complex, rich and powerful.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Simone castle cellars were dug in the sixteenth century by the religious order of the "Great Carmelites of Aix."
