Miraval Rosé 2013
Winemaker’s Notes: Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Rolle. Beautiful light pale pink color. On the nose, fantastic bouquet with delicate aromas of white fruits, just-picked strawberries and floral notes. The mouth is complex with raspberry and wild strawberry notes, wild herbs, citrus, and wet-stone flavors. It has a refreshing acidity thanks to the altitude of the vineyards, and a round, long and vibrant finish.
Made from the couple’s 1,000-acre Estate in Southern France, Jolie and Pitt were determined to make a great wine, overseeing every step of the process from vineyard management to the selection of the strikingly original bottle. And they had no trouble gaining the assistance from one of France’s most highly-renowned winemakers, Marc Perrin (of Beaucastel, among others). Perrin fell in love with the vineyard: “This is a magical place that we traverse from one end to the other to discover exceptional plots. The valley, property of the chateau, offers an unmatched eco-system and gives the wines a unique style in terms of freshness and elegance.”
“Refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon. The focused finish features flint and spice notes, with a hint of cream. Drink now.” 90 points Wine Spectator
