Château Miraval belonged from 1970 to Jacques Loussier, jazz pianist and wine lover. He produced the Miraval rosé under the name Pink Floyd. A few years ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt rented Château Miraval for a period of three years. In 2008 the Château was bought by the Hollywood couple. The wine cellar dates from the early 19th century and was renovated in the 1990s; the wooden barrels rest in the cellar of the original farmhouse (around 1300) which was completely renovated in 1995. The vineyards surrounding the Château are located on a slope at 350 meters altitude, which makes the Miraval wines so elegant and refined. The rosé and the scarce white wine is the result of a collaboration between the Hollywood couple and the respected wine family Perrin.
Chateau Miraval is one of the few estates in Provence that has its own valley and has two parts namely the Coteaux Varois en Provence (north-west) and Côtes de Provence (to the east). The vineyard is planted on a gentle slope (between 5% and 9%) on clay and limestone soils. The limestone/marl soils are known as Keuper marl. This special marl is particularly suitable for white grape varieties and this gives this Miraval Blanc the unique floral, mineral tones. The 2013 vintage is one of the most beautiful vintages despite the long, cold winter and wet spring. The grapes reached their perfect ripeness, only the 2013 vintage is characterized by a low yield.
The Miraval Blanc Cote de Provence is made for 100% from the typical grape from Provence-de Rolle. The Rolle grape is known in Italy as the Vermentino. The Chateau Miraval Blanc has a beautiful light yellow color with bright golden undertones. The nose is very open with rich aromas of white and tropical fruits such as fresh pineapple and mango. The minerality of the marl is clearly present here and this makes this Miraval a wonderfully fresh elegant wine. The balance between minerality, acidity and fruit makes this a unique sensation. The finale is rich in apricots and lifted by toasty aromas. The Miraval Blanc Cote de Provence is an absolute gastronomic masterpiece that does an excellent job as an aperitif, but even better with Asian dishes and sushi and with delicious fresh fish and with a fruit-du-mer
