Chateau Simone Palette Blanc 2010, 750ml
Baked orchard fruit mingles with bitter almond, walnut and honeycomb. This is an incredible wine for food - great with cheese or alongside roasted vegetable and protein of a wide array (duck, chicken or any other kind of game bird or roasted pork) Chateau Simone pretty much owns all the vineyards of Palette - a town just south of Aix-en-Provence. As such, the wines have a cult status and are known for their age-ability. Predominantly Clairette, with small amounts of Grenache Blanc and Ugni Blanc, and finished with a smattering of several other grapes which are aged in large older barrels.
