Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2014

$22.99

Wine Spectator 90 points – A light rosemary thread weaves around a core of white cherry and dried tea leaf notes, lingering on the refreshing finish, where stylish rose water and white peach accents chime in. A pure style. Drink now. 50,000 cases made.-JM .October/2015

Wine & Spirits 90 points – The advantage of tasting wine blind is that star power has no effect. So, while some people will buy this simply because it comes from the estate that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie own in Correns, just north of Brignoles in Provence, our panel recommended it because it’s graceful and firm, a rose with conviction. The fruit feels diaphanous, allowing a clear view to the chalky minerality that runs through the wine; the acidity feels vibrant, extending the flavors and whetting the palate for another sip. It’s made in conjunction with the Famille Perrin, in their facilities. .August/2015

Description

Tucked away in its own private valley in the ancient village of Correns – the first organic village in France – Miraval covers 500 hectares of land in the heart of Provence. The magnificent Chateau is set in a cirque surrounded by ancient woods, olive trees, vi­neyards and abundant water supply. Lush wildlife combines with the beautiful Provencal climate and quality Mediterranean lifestyle to reveal an enchanting oasis. Miraval’s exclusive valley location embodies an exceptional terroir. Terroir is the expression of the soil, the climate and the history of the land – the essence of the wine. At an altitude of 350 meters the vines are privileged to enjoy warm, sunny days and cool nights, bringing freshness and balance to the wines. The natural clay and chalk soils are important in retaining vital water supply while at the same time draining excess water, contributing to healthy grape maturation. Miraval sits at the foot of Via Aurelia – an extensive route built to facilitate Roman expan­sion in the 3rd century BC – representing centuries of history. Following Celtic settlement and Roman occupation, the property served as host to mo­nastic practice and as home to members of the French Court, appearing in the Registry of Noble Houses in the 14th century.
