Last September, Jasper Morris, Master of Wine and founder of Insideburgundy.com, visited our estate. He met with Emmanuel Sala, our winemaker, and together they tasted our beautiful Simone 2016. Here are his comments.
Clos Marey-Monge Simone 2016: 5 stars – 93 points
“This is the principal wine produced, being a blend which contains wine from all of the separate plots, including Simone. Full bright red purple, with plenty of energy to the nose, dark fruit, this appears very complete from the first nose. Everything is in balance, showing quite a lot of wood, but well assembled, a little bit if heat from the alcohol but this may be a passing phase, soft rich and compelling.”
