The best rosé in the world? We weren't the only ones that chuckled when we read the headline, a story conjured by over enthusiastic writers in the wake of Château Miraval's appearance on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2013. To be sure, Jolie-Pitt & Perrin's inaugural effort shared great company, and as as the only rosé in the Top 100 it immediately became the pink to drink. Within an hour of the headlines, the remainder of our inventory vanished - we sold more rose in November than we did in July!
Of course once we sold out the first question people asked was, "When is the next vintage coming in?" We're happy to report that the wait is almost over. The initial European release of the newly minted 2013 Miraval rose has already sold out to a waiting list of customers within a few hours, and the first US shipment is currently en route. Scheduled to arrive early- to mid-March, we're happy to offer our customers an exclusive chance to pre-order bottles today at special discounted pricing. Guarantee your bottles today for spring sipping and summer quaffing at very competitive pricing.
Early buzz for the new vintage has already started to surface, with a rave 17.5/20 (91 points) review from Decanter magazine praising the 2013 Miraval's "lovely floral nose," and, "delicate structure that deepens on the palate." The review continues, "there is a sense of power alongside the elegance, a structure and a fresh acidity that gives the wine persistency, with a grip of minerality that gives a delicious mouthwatering finish. This marks a serious improvement on last year."
The 2013 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. We are excited to report that there are an extremely limited amount of magnums available for the first time ever with this release, on sale as noted below.
