Julie Balagny's Simone

en 2014 Simone…c’est moi!

Julie normally bottles Simone as a Fleurie, but Simone revolted in 2014, taking longer than usual to finish fermenting. Her patience with her punk rock child, however, made the wait well worth it.  Simone…c’est moi’s a sheer pleasure to drink, and, since it’s declassified Fleurie bottled as a Vin de France, the price makes it a relative bargain.

Remember: the grapes here come from her oldest vines (up to 90 years) planted on steep hills in granite and quartz. And, needless to say, supply is limited.
