Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2022

$20.00

It always comes in a great package, and it’s a serious Provencal Rose and then some, but I’ve always been skeptical. I figured it was a marketing ploy. Brangelina’s Rose. But after tasting this year’s, I decided to dig a little bit deeper and see what was underneath the pretty label.

Miraval Rose is made by none other than superstar winemaker Marc Perrin, who has countless times turned the wine world on its head with his 100-point Chateauneuf du Papes at Chateau de Beaucastel. But for a few years now, his vibrant, high-toned Provencal Rose has outsold his beloved flagship wines.

I’m guessing it’s a result of being one of the first ever Roses featured on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list. And when Wine Enthusiast reviewed over a thousand wines and declared it one of their Top 3 Provence Wines of the Year, that probably helped. I doubt Brad had much to do with it all.

The wine is drawn off a very special vineyard, tucked away in a private valley on an ancient terrace, planted between 750 and 1150 in elevation. I gotta be honest with you — not many folks in Provence have this kind of asset.

Adding fuel to the fire is the terroir- a chalky, pebbly top soil above precious limestone soil– perfect for a Rose that flashes the kind of minerality only the best French wines can boast.

The 2022 Miraval Provence Rose is a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah. It’s got a beautiful salmon color, packed with juicy notes of macerated cherries, strawberry currants, citrus and a lemon zest and it flashes that refreshing minerality that has become a Provence signature.

94 Points, Tasting Panel
Beautiful to behold both in its hue and the highlights it reflects, this is subtly aromatic but a bit bolder in flavor, with real richness that weighs in at the low end of medium-bodied. The texture is luxuriously a way that suggests that free-run soft in juice was generously utilized, and the nicely balanced acidity is well integrated with the fruit.

90 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Syrah, sourced from vines planted on clay-limestone soils, the 2022 Cotes de Provence Rose reveals aromas of red berries, spices, peach, watermelon, spring flowers and pomegranate. Medium-bodied and elegantly oaky with a spicy touch, it’s fresh and fruity with a mouthwatering, elegant finish. This rosé benefits from the expertise of the Perrin family.
