Clear yellow color with shining reflects. The nose is strong with spicy notes, flower and mint mix up to offer a rare aromatic complexity. The mouth is straight, initially crispy, then it complexifies with salty notes. Round with a perfect balance between acidity, fruit and aromas. The minerality of this wine is characteristic of the great Chardonnay cultivated in a fresh environment and raised in oak barrel.

Pale gold in colour, with a beguiling aroma of fresh apples, lemon curd and toasted citrus fruits atop a palate of fresh and crisp green-apple acidity, buttery and peachy fruit and a long, warming finish.

90 Points James Suckling.

“This is a bright and crisp chardonnay that makes you feel France with sliced lemon, apple and mineral character. Medium-bodied, crisp and delicious. Drink me.”

The village of Lugny is located high up in the South of the Mâcon region. It has a great reputation for its white wines which has made Mâcon famous. It is well known that the village of Lugny, with its limestone soils and warm climate, produces the most coveted white wines of the region. The vineyard of « Les Genièvres » is one of the best. Maison Louis Latour selects the best grapes of this village, which thanks to its terroir, was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago.

Deep orange gold. This has an attractive and complex baked apple nose with hints if spice and caramel. The palate is complex, powerful and concentrate and is distinguished by the high level of acidity. Highly textured, with a russet-apple and quince like presence, this is still positively youthful.It has been preserved by the acidity and will continue to hold for years to come. It deserves to be in the cellar of all true Chenin lovers.

Polished, deep yellow-gold. The nose is muted and withdrawn, we suspect this showed some reduction in its youth, but has since emerged. The palate is light on entry but builds well to a relatively powerful finish. There is some complexityhare, with the wine developing some calvados like flavours.

86 Points Wine Enthusiast

“Soft, earthy and gentle, this is already developing and drinkable. It has fresh lemon flavors along with bright pineapple. Finished with bright acidity, it is lightly mineral and crisp at the end. Drink now.”

Duas Quintas is a white wine from the Upper Douro, more specifically from Quinta de Ervamoira (150 metres altitude) and Quinta dos Bons Ares (600 metres altitude), and is a
blend of traditional grape varieties that expresses the potential of this most extreme region. It is a structured, unctuous white wine but also fine and elegant.
2013 was an excellent year for our production of white wines on the Upper Douro. Its climatic characteristics, namely a wet winter and dry summer, as well as the perfect conditions that occurred during harvest (between August 13th and September 18th), provided very well balanced grapes with great aromatic expression

Product Information

Family and values
The story of San Simone is linked to the territory. At Rondover, between Prata and Porcia, in the most western part of Doc Friuli Grave and central part of DOC Prosecco, the company San Simone is the result of winemaking tradition and culture of our family, which is engaged in the business of wine grower for four generations. We chose the name San Simone for our wines and wine cellar in the memory of our origins. The very first and historic headquarter was in fact situated in via San Simone, Prata, opposite the fourteenth century church devoted to San Simone, where our great-grandfather decided to began his activity which is now been converted into a family residence.

Many changes have taken place over time. But one thing which has not changed is our value system. Values: responsibility towards the reality in which we work, passion for work and transparency in our working system. These are the values which are timeless.
