Miraval’s terroir is the expression of the soil, the climate and the history of the land – the essence of the wine. Today, Miraval is a summer residence of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have given impetus to the heart of the estate as a place dedicated to the arts – music, cinema, theatre, local food and fine wine.
The A.O.P Côtes de Provence issued from the Château’s best parcels (Muriers, Longue, Romarin), and from selected parcels in the best terroirs of Provence. Clay & Limestone vineyard, partially in teraces located at an average of 350 meters. Cool climate for the area with big temperature swings between night and day.
The grapes are harvested exclusively in the morning and sorted twice. Destemming. ‘Pressurage direct’ for Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle. The Syrah is vinified partially using the «saignee» method. Vinified in temperature – controlled stainless steel vats (95%) and in barrels (5%) with batonnage.
The Miraval Rosé has an attractive, soft blush robe and is beautifully bright. On the nose we are greeted by delicate notes of raspberries, peaches, and white flowers. The expression of the soil is revealed on the palate by its impressive freshness bringing minerality and salinity, a signature of 2014. Great balance, good length and character.
