An ethereal pale pink colour with silver reflections, this wine has the allure of a pure summer breeze. A complex rosé, with apronounced mineral structure it’s characterised by elegant notes of wild strawberry, citrus, white flowers and a hint of lychee. Mirabeau Pure is refreshing and refined with a lingering, beautifulfinish that will prolong the aromatic pleasures. The perfect bottle for any occasion that calls for something a little special or as a gastronomic partner to good food.

Pair with salads, canapés, grilled white meats, fish and shellfish, sushi and Asian cuisine, fine vegetarian foods.

A darling rosé, the light-pink colored 2016 Mirabeau en Provence Pure exhibits bright red fruit, savory spices, and dried herbs. The wine's palate is full and rich and leads into a finish that is dry, yet easy. Pair with fresh salmon and tuna sashimi. (Tasted: March 24, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
British transplant Stephen Cronk runs this brand, culling grenache and syrah from sustainably minded farmers near Cotignac, where he's based. It's floral and friendly, honeysuckle notes mingling with white-pepper scents and a juicy pear succulence to the fruit.

Mirabeau, Cotes de Provence, Provence, France

In August 2009, after twenty years in the corporate world, the Cronk family, Stephen, Jeany and their three young children, relocated from London to a small village in France to follow their dream of quiet country living, more family time together, and crafting fine local wines that could grow to be regarded as one of the very best from the region.

They started in Cotignac, in the heart of Provence and spent a year finding the best vineyards to work with and putting together a highly experienced winemaking team. The family launched Mirabeau wines in 2010 and dedicated the past seven years to slowly growing the business and building strong relationships with their customers. Today, Mirabeau is sold in more than 50 markets and the collection of rosés have earned acclaim from some of the world’s toughest wine critics.

The family produces a trio of Cotes de Provence rosés, from the fresh bright style of Mirabeau Classic through the more subtle, mineral style of Pure to the newest aromatic offering called Etoile. Large formats are available upon request for Pure – up to 12 liter bottles. In addition to rosés, the Cronk Family have released a sparkling rosé in limited markets and are excited about the old vine reds that are still in barrel. The future is bright!

Cotes de Provence

View all wine

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

Rosé Wine

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
