Story

The vintage
A hot and dry winter - leading to an early bud burst - and a cool and rainy spring, with strong frosts, was the start of this 2019 vintage. We had to fight to protect our plots, especially those intended for the Muse cuvée, and attend the vineyard with foliar applications to stimulate the vines. Fortunately, the beautiful hot and dry summer allowed a superb development of the vines. Significant and regular work on the soils after the rain limited water stress until the harvest, which went wonderfully well in mid-September. Quite early for the region, they took place at night or at daybreak to preserve the freshness and incredible purity of the aromas of this vintage. If the quantity is small, the quality is good with wines that promise to be very pure, well balanced and of exceptional delicacy.

Reviews

"Le Rosé Superstar"
"Scrumptious, pale, herb and hibiscus-perfumed pink, enhanced with
syrah and oak barrel-aged rolle, from Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and the
winemaker Marc Perrin. Unlike other celeb-endorsed wines, Miraval
has improved with every vintage.

"The 2019 Miraval Rose is sourced from their 500 hectare vineyard that is set in valley in the ancient village of Correns in the center of Provence. A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, and Rolle, the vineyard is set on limestone and clay soils. A light dusting of salted damp earth combines with pretty rose water and melon tones on the nose. The palate is fresh and wonderfully textured, showing layers of bright melon and red fruit flavors with a great veil of tension. Fantastic now, this beautiful effort will cellar well over the next seven plus years."

"BEST CELEB-OWNED WINE - Brangelina is no more, but they’re still churning out an A+ rosé. Also, their bottle has serious fancy French-lady vibes. Just add cheese."
