Miraval Rosé Côtes de Provence - 2023

Miraval rosé is a wonderful blend of fruits aromas and freshness, made on an exceptional terroirs in Provence.

Presentation

The vintage
Like in the Northern Rhône, the 2023 vintage was full of contrasts in Provence, requiring composure and meticulous and permanent attention of our vines. After a dry winter, the spring was particularly wet with episodes of hail which caused damage. Following these heavy rains, we had to face significant spells of mildew before a particularly hot and dry summer. The harvest thus began early on September 6th. Due to these climatic hazards, the harvest offers a limited quantity but with magnificent quality. The wines are now resting peacefully in the cellar. In the fall, we were also able to harvest a good crop of olives, around 15 tonnes.

Advice

Tasting
Magnificent bright and clear rose-gold colour with subtle silver undertones. The nose immediately reveals all the elegance and subtlety of Miraval Rosé with its superb intense and floral aromatic bouquet, mixing notes of hibiscus and amaryllis with a gourmet nature with delicious aromas of vine peaches. The sophistication continues on the palate with an ample, fleshy, silky texture, gourmet aromas of crunchy fruit combined with a beautiful tension and a very nice balance thanks to the natural acidity and the minerality typical to Miraval terroir offering saline and limestone notes. The finish is outstanding, full of length, delicately silky. A magnificent vintage of Miraval with signature flavours.
