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.
Terroir
Partly from the plots surrounding the famous recording Studio and partly from a magnificent vineyard located at the foot of the Cézanne’s mountain, Studio by Miraval white is a tribute to Rolle which is The main local white grape variety.
Ageing
The Rolle is vinified in tulip-shaped concrete vats with a rounded bottom. This ovoid shape creates a natural convection movement that suspends the lees creating the same effect as a batonnage. This results in a wines that keep their fruitiness and acidity but also gives texture and body.

Advice

Tasting notes
The 2019 White Studio shows a pale colour with delicate green reflections.
The very expressive nose is a subtle mix of floral aromas of acacia and fennel with lemony and fruity notes. Very elegant on the palate, this refreshing wine offers
a nice minerality with refined notes of citrus, white lowers and iodine.

Reviews

90/100
"An outpouring of stone fruits from the glass, ripe peaches, pears, citrus plus a hint of white blossom and reductive flint on the nose. Made in tulip-shaped concrete vats, which serves the similar effect of batonnage, the wine features a oily and textured palate, with crisp apple and lime fruits. This is a white wine made from 100% Rolle, the main local white grape at the foot of the Cézanne’s mountain of Southern Rhône."
