While it's easy to throw rose into the light, easygoing, drink-young category, this is one pink drink that definitely falls way outside of that particular camp. Chateau Simone is located in the AOC of Palette, a small region that is near Aix-en-Provence. While the grapes used to make this particular wine are exactly what one would expect (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, etc'¦) this rose is anything but ordinary. Many of the vines owned by Chateau Simone are over a century old, the grapes are all hand harvested, destemmed, and fermented in a mix of small wooden vats and cement eggs with native yeasts. But what makes this wine truly unique is the fact that it is made in a style similar to sherry, and is partially aged under flor, which lends the wine a rich, nutty, oxidative quality that adds complexity and ageability to the fruity notes of cherry and strawberry. It is one of the few roses, along with Chateau Le Puy and Lopez de Heredia, that transcends the category and can be treated and aged like a red. One of the world's most unique roses, ideal for any wine geek.
