Winemaker's Notes

The Miraval Rose has an attractive, soft blush color and is beautifully bright. On the nose, there are delicate notes of raspberries, peaches and white flowers.The expression of the soil is revealed on the palate by its impressive freshness bringing minerality and salinity, a signature of 2014. Great balance, good length and character.

Critical Acclaim

  • RP91
    The Wine Advocate - "The finest rosé yet from this estate (the wine is made by the top notch team at Chateau Beaucastel), the light pink colored 2014 Cotes de Provence Rose sports a fresh and lively bouquet of wild strawberries, raspberries and white flowers to go with a supple, lightly textured, silky and seamless feel on the palate. About as gulp-able and hard to resist as they come, it's a killer rosé to drink over the coming 6-8 months."
  • V91
    Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Vivid salmon-skin color. Fresh, incisive aromas of orange zest, redcurrant and white flowers, with hints of honey and lavender in the background. Silky and light on its feet, offering intense red berry and citrus fruit flavors that deepen and spread out with air. Packs a solid punch but comes off as lithe and precise, with excellent finishing cut and floral persistence. Put aside the celebrity cachet of this wine and judge it for what it is: an outstanding, classically built Provençal rosé that happens to be made by the highly esteemed Perrin family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's Château de Beaucastel, who are joint partners with estate owners Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in this ambitious and deadly serious venture."
