Miraval Rose 2015, Provence
The 2015 Miraval Rose looks sexy in the palest of salmon-pinks with shiny reflections. This crisp and precise 2015 has a lovely mineral freshness with delicate aromas of citrus, red and orange fruits(red currants, strawberries cherries, raspberries, tangerines) and white flowers(very imagery). On the palate very balanced and elegant along with tension bringing decent length. The bouquet of aromas is persistent, leading to a long lasting fruity finish with salty undertone, which is clean, smart, elegant
The intensity and structure come from the 60 year-old vines. The terroir, the freshness that comes from the altitude(350m above ground) and the excellent ripeness from the Eastern exposure site conditioned by cool Mistral.
Team members think that this is one of the best value Rose in the ‘cult’ class. Winemaker Marc Perrin of the famous Chateau Beaucastel helped Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to produce this rosé since 2012, challenging the cult-like status of the Whispering Angel and Domaine Ott.
Wine Enthusiast - "The product of a partnership between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with the Perrin family of Chateau Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, this bottling achieves instant fame. Happily, it is also a very fine wine, perfectly balanced between crisp fruit and acidity. In the background a touch of tannin accompanies pepper and minerality. It is ready to drink.Editor's Choice."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Pale orange. Expressive scents of fresh red berries, orange zest, white flowers and chalky minerals show excellent clarity and lift. Fine-grained and focused on the palate, offering zesty red currant, strawberry and tangerine flavors and an exotic touch of honey on the back half. The floral note comes back strong on a silky, very persistent, mineral-tinged finish."
