#84 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
Beautiful light pale pink color. On the nose, fantastic bouquet with delicate aromas of white fruits, just-picked strawberries and floral notes. The mouth is complex with raspberry and wild strawberry notes, wild herbs, citrus and wet stone flavors. It has a refreshing acidity, thanks to the altitude of the vineyards, and a round, long, vibrant finish.
Miraval is a joint venture between Famille Perrin and Hollywood A-listers, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
"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."
Very good wine. Light and refreshing. Great for sipping out on the deck with friends.
I bought this for a Sunday outing. I no nothing about wines or champagnes whatsoever and I was nervous. All of my friends loved it and said it was a great pick. Of course they made jokes (first timer), but they loved it. If anyone can give me any ideas for wines for a newbie like me, then let me know.
Delicious with just a hint of sweetness. Angie and Brad did a great job with this one!
