For more than 10 generations the SIMON-Vallat family has owned an old mill built in one of their vineyards.The mill stone dating as far back as 1710 still exists. In 1892 the mill stopped functionning . The whole story could have inspired south of France writer like Marcel Pagnol or Alphonse Daudet. The might have written about how the mill expired waterless by its dry creek, the Pourpré. This creek gathered water from several springs. One day one of them was sold and deviated to the city away from the mill.....the poor owner (the today's owner's great great grand father) gave the name of his mill to his estate and decided to concentrate on his wineyar. You can still hear this story through the grape wine....
The estate is 21 hectares of Côtes du Rhône wines. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Counoise, Clairette are the grape varieties you find here. The wine making is guaranted by the owner Françoise SIMON.Journalist for the press and television in Paris for 13 years, holder of a PHD in english and a former lecturer at the University of Paris X, Françoise SIMON became a wine maker when her father died in 1995. We do not number the medal our wines have won throughout the years. Our Côtes du Rhône will add distinction to your tables.
We produce 6 different wines:
The Traditional Red and White, La Vie en Rose (Rosé), Vénus (oaked white), Carmen (oaked over matured Grenache), and Reine de Saba (pure Syrah oaked). We do not number the medals our wines have won. You'll find our wines are very elegant, distinguished, they will add distinction to your tables and surprise your guests with their aromas. They are intense and perfumed, velvety, fleshy and spicy. They are wines with Character similar to those whose names they have been given. Carmen wil lit Passion in your eyes with its sensual mellowness and powerful complexity, Vénus with its notes of white peaches and white flowers together with honey and a beautiful persistence with notes of vanilla will create an emotion you won't easily forget. with the exotic Reine de Saba you will discover a real fascination for pure Syrah and its fabulous aromas of blackcurrant, liquorish and violet. The Rosé La Vie en Rose will certainly whisper "quand il me prend dans ses bras" in your ear and its taste of red fruit jam, strawberry, raspberry and red currant will be a dazzling memory you won't easily forget.
