Miraval Blanc Côtes de Provence - 2022

This wine is fleshy and mineral at the same time with aromas of white-flesh fruit, small peaches and almonds. A balance which gives this wine a unique sensation.


The vintage
The mild and little rainy winter, followed by a mild and dry spring, without any frost, allowed to maintain a perfect sanitary state of the vines throughout the vegetative cycle, avoiding fungal diseases. The summer that followed was exceptional, particularly hot and dry, without a drop of water. Thanks to our good mastery of the vegetation cover, we protected our vines from the heat and avoided water competition. Harvest started early, on September 5th in superb weather conditions. The grapes, of exceptional quality, were harvested very early in the morning in order to preserve all their freshness and purity, the two timeless markers of Miraval’s signature. The beauty of the grapes kept its promise in the cellar, giving straightforward wines with great minerality, with an excellent acidity/alcohol balance, superb colour and remarkable aromatic intensity, blending magnificent notes of red fruit and citrus.
Chateau Miraval is one of the only estates in Provence to have its own private valley on the Commune of Correns to the north of Brignoles. The vineyard covers two appellations: Coteaux Varois en Provence (at the north-west) and Cotes de Provence (at the East of the estate).
The vineyard is planted on a gentle slope (between 5% and 9%) on clay and limestone soils. The sub-soils are known as Keuper marl. This particular clay is known to have a low internal surface area and is particularly
adapted to great white varietals.
The grapes are hand picked in 35Kg crates and then sorted. Sorting. Gentle pressing. Low temperature fermentation. Ageing in demi-muids (600 litres) and barrique (225 litres) with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) for 50% of the cuvee.
Rolle : 100%


Attractive, limpid and shiny pale-yellow colour with luminous green-gold reflections. This wine opens with a gourmet and delicate nose revealing a superb aromatic bouquet dominated by notes of white flowers. Ample, round and soft, the palate reveals tasty aromas of pears, quince and white peaches, perfectly balanced by a nice minerality and just the right acidity. This very elegant wine finally offers a long finish, of great freshness.
