Can you blame them? After setting eyes on this gorgeous estate a few years ago, Hollywood's favorite power couple couldn't help but purchase the Château Miraval as a summer retreat. As one of the top wine producers in Provence, Miraval had built an impressive following for their lively Rôlle-based white wine and curiously named Pink Floyd rosé over the course of many years. Fast forward to winter 2013 and the Jolie-Pitts have decided to partner with Team Perrin of Beaucastel fame to concentrate on relaunching the Miraval brand worldwide.
With a stately new bottle and clean label this has already become one of the most sought after rosés of the year with the worst of winter still on the horizon! We've already heard plenty of snark from those who can't believe the rosé is anything but hype fueled by the estate's new owners. However, beyond the glitz and glamour the elements that made Miraval a wine worth gulleting in the first place have stayed in place. Old vines, terraced vineyards, and organic farming form the basis for what remains one of our top picks for summer imbibing.
The 2012 Château Miraval rosé is available for pre-arrival sale now. Though we've secured one of the country's largest allocations of this wine we do expect it sell out long before the dog days of summer. Earlier this week an online sale in France resulted in a total sell-out in less than 24 hours. Those who secure their bottles through this pre-arrival offering will enjoy an extremely competitive price, valid while supplies last.
