Chateau Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2013
2012 vintage Bettane+Desseauve 91.
“The appearance of the wine is pale, but with expressive shades of gold. No amylic notes on thenose, on the contrary a profusion of fruit aromas –pomegranate, apricot, raspberry – and flowers. This rich aromatic palette lingers on, no sharpness nor roughness in the palate which is already radiant, with a fresh and dynamic finish. This is a vigorous and full-bodied rosé that one may appreciate with a sea bass or a barbecue.”
90 Points Wine Spectator.
"Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released their first wine, a 2012 rose from their Provence estate, Chateau Miraval. In a blind tasting of a flight of Provençal roses at Wine Spectator's New York office, the wine was refined and elegant, with pure flavors of dried red berry and tangerine, and a focused finish with flint and spice notes.
It scored 90 points, or outstanding, on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale."
“In a blind tasting of a flight of Provençal rosés at Wine Spectator’s New York office, the wine was refined and elegant, with pure flavors of dried red berry and tangerine, and a focused finish with flint and spice notes...The Cotes de Provence rosé is a blend of red grapes Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah and white grape Rolle (aka Vermentino). It was made using a combination of direct pressing and the saignée method and vinified primarily in stainless vats. Roughly 5 percent was fermented in oak barrels to give the wine added richness.”
