Miraval is another of Provence's excellent roses, made from vineyards at 350 metres elevation so that the coolness of the nights allows the grapes to gently ripen bringing a freshness and aromatic depth to the wines. Sillky smooth, but dry and complex with notes of summer berries, red flowers, wild strawberry with high notes of honeysuckle and pink grapefruit.

"Miraval’s owners, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, plus winemaker Marc Perrin continue to make one of the Côtes de Provence’s classiest roses that, remarkably, improves with every vintage. With scrumptious, pale, herby, hibiscus fruit, everyone loves this dumpy, pot-belly-bottled pink."

Jane MacQuitty, The Times, Saturday 4th July

Provence

Provence is perhaps the most picturesque of France's wine regions with azure coasts and lavender fields. There has been a tsunami of rosé flooding our shores from this region, some of it of questionable quality, but in the majority the wines are extremely likeable and in some instances, outstanding.

We are particularly fond of Domaine des Mapliers for their sophisticated and gastronomic style, but who can forget Chateau d'Esclans for their Whispering Angel which is nothing short of a phenomenon. The very best examples in our opinion come from the world class estate of Domaine Tempier producing outstanding wines in all three colours.
