The vineyards are located at an altitude of 350 meters on sheltered terraces. The soil consists mainly of clay and chalk. The cuvée is composed of cinsault, grenache, syrah and rolle. Rolle is the same grape variety as the vermentino known in Italy. 10% of the wine was aged in old wooden barrels to give the wine character and creaminess.

The grapes are picked by hand in 35kg crates. The grapes are selected in the chateau and given a very mild pressing and even for the Miraval Blanc only free-flow juice is used.

The Miraval Provence Rosé is made from organically grown grapes. The wine is a blend of mainly Grenache with a small amount of Cinsault, Syrah and Rolle. The Miraval rosé is a very lively rosé with concentrated flavors. This Miraval Provence Rosé is the best rosé of the estate (the wine is made by the top notch team of Chateau Beaucastel). The light pink colored Côtes de Provence Miraval Rosé has a fresh and lively bouquet of wild strawberries, raspberries and white flowers and gives a smooth, silky mouthfeel with a fine structure, beautiful mandarin and peach nuances. The aftertaste contains fruity berry nuances. After one sip, another sip is hard to resist. Absolutely great rosé which has also been rewarded with no less than 90 parker points (year 2018).

Provence Rosé Miraval has now been placed at number 84 on the 100 best wines of 2013 by the highly renowned wine magazine Wine Spectator. The jury report describes the wine as 'elegant' with 'pure and concentrated flavors of dried red currant, mandarin and melon' . The names behind this rosé have certainly contributed to the fact that this is now the most sought-after rosé, but it is fair to say that this is an absolute serious class rosé and belongs to the honorary division in the row of Domaine Tropez, Domaine Ott, Esclans and minutes.

The Miraval Provence Rosé is a great aperitif but certainly also goes well with lobster, shellfish, white pasta dishes or a delicious salad.

From 1970 Château Miraval belonged 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 the meantime, the Château was bought by the Hollywood couple in 2008. 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 around the Château are situated on a slope at an altitude of 350 meters, which makes the Miraval wines so elegant and refined. The rosé is the result of a collaboration between the Hollywood couple and the respected wine family Perrin, one of the largest and most successful wine families in the world. They are especially renowned for their world-class winery Château de Beaucastel on the Rhône. Art and knowledge come together here. And that is exactly what the Jolie-Pitt & Perrin wines reflect. Together they have big plans for the future in making organic wines.
