Chateau Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
Strawberry, white fruit and white flowers on the very fresh nose with a lightly textured and silky, medium-bodied profile that's perfect the summer. Produced by the Perrin family (of Chateau Beaucastel).
Bottled just a few weeks before my visit, Miraval's 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose was in fine form. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Rolle, it boasts floral and melon aromas, while on the palate, it's medium-bodied, plump and fleshy, with a zesty, tangerine-tinged finish.
A mineral-driven rosé, with wet stone and dried herb notes echoing through the delicate white cherry and tangy raspberry flavors, showing good focus through the crisp finish. Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Tibouren. Drink now. 130,000 cases imported.
