Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose, Côtes de Provence, France, 2020
40% Grenache/Garnacha , 30% Cinsault, 20% Rolle, 10% Syrah/Shiraz. The wine was fermented separately with 95% in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and 5% in oak barrels and then blended post fermentation.
The wine has a beautiful pale, petal-pink colour, with bright nuances. On the nose, it has aromas of fresh redcurrants, lemons and spring flowers. It finishes with a refreshing acidity, minerality and a saline finish.
Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque town. Tucked away in its own private valley, the Château is surrounded by ancient woodlands and olive groves. In 2012, owners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie partnered with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel fame, who oversee wine production at the estate. Their continued dedication to improving quality in both the vineyards and the cellar, have seen the wines go from strength to strength, with Château Miraval today considered one of the great names of Provence.
"Blended from estate and non-estate fruit, Miraval's 2020 Cotes de Provence Rose is a traditional blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino) and Syrah, with a tiny proportion (about 5%) fermented in barrel. Whatever one may think about the movie star connection, there's no denying the technical expertise the Perrin family brings to the project, with this vintage offering up attractive notions of red berries, tangerine, peach and melon, all layered on a base of crushed stone. It's medium-bodied and fully dry, with a sense of elegant austerity on the finish."
90/100 points, Joe Czerwinski, WINE ADVOCATE, July 2021
