Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé, France
Created by Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt and made by the Perrin Family of Beaucastel fame, Miraval rosé is a wonderful blend of fruits aromas and freshness, made on an exceptional terroirs in Provence.
This blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Syrah show a pretty petal pink colour with shiny undertones. The 2018 vintage instantly reminds of Provence with its beautiful aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers. Airy and balanced, it delicately combines great freshness and complexity, and develops saline and mineral notes. Its long and intense finish is the signature of a rosé with incomparable elegance: Miraval.
The 2018 vintage is a ray of Provencal sunshine, thanks to the region’s particularly generous climate and nature. The rains at the beginning of the season meant the vines were well-prepared and grew healthily in the spring. This is an exacting time during which we need to be constantly in the vineyard, keeping an eye on things, and the work is painstaking and meticulous. The warm and sunny summer we then enjoyed in Provence enabled the grapes to mature perfectly and harvesting conditions were ideal. This 2018 vintage is a rich one indeed, full of fruit and a fine freshness.
