Fleur de Miraval is a joint venture between three enterprises. No prizes for guessing that Pitt-Jolie of Chateau Miraval is the brand owner, but it is Rodolphe Peters of Champagne Pierre Peters and Marc Perrin of Chateau de Beaucastel that have the greater input on the winemaking.

Champagne Fleur de Miraval is a non-vintage, prestige cuvée rosé and is the only house in Champagne to produce exclusively rosé.

Rodolphe Peters is the absolute master of Chardonnay from the Cote de Blancs, which forms the lion's share of the blend. The wine is drawn from Rodolphe's perpetual reserve system (kind of like a Sherry Solera) of aged wines dating back to 2007. The rose element is from Pinot Noir made using the saignée method where the colour is obtained just by gentle pressing, rather than through colouration by adding red wine.

This first release of Fleur de Miraval was only 20,000 bottles

At Noble Grape we source our Champagnes like any of our wines - we seek out quality, value, and authenticity of style. We favour Growers Champagnes, but we are not strict about that. We do stock a few of the big names, but those that are family owned and fit our ethos of quality over branding and lifestyle.

The highlights from our range include Pierre Gimonnet which is a grower based in Cuis in the Cotes de Blancs, where Chardonnay is king. Gimonnet makes a style of wine that is as close to 'dry' as possible for a Brut, with elegance and purity. René Geoffroy is another grower we favour whose vineyards in Cumieres tend to prefer Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Elsewhere, we work with Beaumont de Crayeres, a leading co-operative, and Billecart Salmon whose wines we admire very much for their raciness and body.
