Producer Profile


In 2011, Chateau Simian entered a new era with its inaugural certified biodynamic vintages, marking a transformative chapter under the stewardship of Florian. Having completed his studies, Florian assumed responsibility for vineyard management, witnessing firsthand the profound impact of an agricultural philosophy rooted in harmony with nature. The fruits of this approach are evident in grapes of unparalleled quality: boasting thick skins imbued with rich color and aromas, accompanied by silky tannins, and a lusciously sweet pulp underscored by stable acidity. Collaborating closely with Pierre Chaupin, the cellarmaster, Florian ensures that this exceptional raw material is translated into wines of exquisite texture and flavor.

Where The Wines Come From

Southern Rhone

The Southern Rhône region, located in southeastern France, is renowned for its warm climate, rugged landscapes, and exceptional wines. In recent years, the area has seen a growing interest in natural winemaking practices, adding a modern twist to its traditional approach. With its Mediterranean climate and diverse terroir, including rocky soils and limestone cliffs, the Southern Rhône provides an ideal environment for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers in the region prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating classic grape varieties such as Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and focusing on natural fermentation, they produce wines that showcase the region's unique character and terroir. Southern Rhône's natural wines are known for their depth, complexity, and expression of fruit flavors, with Grenache offering ripe red berry notes, Syrah contributing peppery spice and dark fruit flavors, and Mourvèdre adding structure and earthy undertones. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, the Southern Rhône remains a key player in the natural wine movement, offering a taste of its rich cultural heritage and commitment to quality winemaking with every bottle.
