Chateau Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé 2021
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
Elegant pale-pink color, evoking a rose petal. On the nose, Miraval Rosé shows all its elegance: beautifully fresh, it exudes aromas of fresh fruit, currants and fresh rose with a zest of lemon. The refinement continues in the mouth with a beautiful liveliness and gourmet notes that subtly balance the mineral and saline notes. An irresistible wine that ends with a long finish with lemony notes.
Robert Parker 90 Points "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."
There is an attractive richness to this wine produced by the Perrin family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is full of ripe red berries mingling with spice and citrus. With a fresh, crisp and textured aftertaste, it is ready to drink.
The Tasting Panel
Pale pink color; silky, dry, and crisp; fresh, lively, and balanced. A nice Provençal wine from a château part owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
