Product Description

The history of the chateau illustrates the ongoing relationship between the vineyard and a long line of wine growers on an exceptional terroir.

Located in the commune of Meyreuil and just four kilometres from Aix en Provence, the old bastide of the Grands Carmes d'Aix monks, now the Chateau Simone, has been in the hands of the Rougier family since 1830. Old documents bear witness to the fact that vines have been cultivated here from time immemorial. The historic reputation of its wines has made Chateau Simone a prime example of the Provencal terroir. Their renown spread and the bottles, with the elegant classical presentation on the original label, found their way to the most prestigious tables and those of the finest gourmets.

Notes and Reviews
ChaÌ_Ì¢teau Notes: Wines of great distinction, with subtle aromas and an extremely complex bouquet permeating


Robert Parker: Palette is a tiny appellation just east of Aix en Provence that in actuality consists of only one serious winemaking estate, the ChaÌ_Ì¢teau Simone. This tiny estate of 37 acres produces a surprisingly long-lived, complex red wine; a fairly oaky, old-styled roseÌ_å wine; and a muscular, full-bodied white wine that behaves as if it were from the northern RhoÌ_Ì¢ne Valley. Simone’s wines are not inexpensive, but they do age extremely well and have always had a loyal following in France.
