Simone 2014

  • Powerful and complex, our Simone 2014 is a deep ruby color with hints of violet. The nose is bursting with energy, distilling a captivating aromatic bouquet of black fruits and emphyreumatic notes. The palate is fleshy, fresh and vibrant. The tight tannic structure is velvety, with a long, vibrant and mineral finish. This special cuvée will express the same energy for the next 30 years.
