Miraval

Provence, provence France

Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque town. Tucked away in its own private valley, the Château is surrounded by ancient woodlands and olive groves. In 2012, owners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie partnered with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel fame, who oversee wine production at the estate. Their continued dedication to improving quality in both the vineyards and the cellar, have seen the wines go from strength to strength, with Château Miraval today considered one of the great names of Provence.

Château Miraval has 50 hectares of terraced vineyards. They are situated at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days and allow the grapes to retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality, helping to regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don‘t. At harvest, the grapes are hand-picked in the coolness of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes go into the wine which blends Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle and Syrah.

All the grapes for the Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé are gently pressed to extract just the right amount of colour, except for the Syrah, which is vinified using the saignée method. Each variety is fermented separately in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks and then blended post fermentation. Additionally, the Rolle is put into 228 litre barrels and bâtonnage is practised to add texture and complexity. The wine is a beautiful pale pink with enticing aromas of raspberries, cherries and hints of garrigue. The palate is dry with crisp acidity and a lingering, perfumed finish.

The ‘Studio’ Rosé is a delicious blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Tibouren which pays tribute to the many artists, including Pink Floyd and AC/DC, who have made tracks at the recording studio on the estate.

The Muse de Miraval is a blend of Grenache and Rolle, which come from a strict selection of two of the oldest parcels at Château Miraval, where the vines are 60 years old. The wine is fermented in tulip-shaped concrete vats and lees-aged until the Spring following harvest. It is bottled exclusively in individually, hand-decorated magnums. Launched at the Cannes film festival in 2019, this is the wine’s second release. Refined, beautifully balanced and complex, this is a serious Rosé from one of the most recognised names in Provence. Just 1900 magnums of the 2019 vintage were made, of which less than 10% are available in the UK and Ireland.
