2013 Miraval Rosé

Wine of the Week: 2013 Miraval Rosé

Provence, FR –
 

When Pitt-Jolie and Marc Perrin designed this angelic (no pun intended) Rosé, it had to be with Angelina Jolie in mind. It’s strikingly beautiful. Delicately pink in color, wearing its scantily-clad label on a champagne-style bottle, it’s simply exquisite. A red carpet choice to die for, wine darlings. This luscious dry Rosé received 90/100 points from Wine Spectator following its 2012 release, which sold out almost immediately. Miraval was my introduction to a refined, elegant Rosé. It’s medium bodied, with red berry and citrus on the nose. Dig deeper and you’ll find melon and spice and local terroir notes. Miraval is certified organic with French Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. A fourth grape, the white Rolle – also known as Vermentino – is part of the blend. From $23 to $29.
