Now jointly owned by Brad Pitt and the Stoli Group of vodka fame, this estate is run by the Perrin family of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This is an impressive rose, elegant with finely balanced fruit and texture. Citrus and raspberries shine through a taut structure. The aftertaste is crisp and fresh. Drink now.
Vivid orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berries, orange zest and nectarine aromas show fine clarity and pick up a floral nuance with air. Juicy and focused on the palate offering sappy tangerine and strawberry flavors that deepen steadily and take on a spicy white pepper note through the back half. Finishes long, gently chewy and precise, with repeating red fruit and spice notes.

Plump and rounded on the palate, Miraval’s 2021 Cotes de Provence Rose follows that up with a mouthwatering, citrusy finish. It’s a pretty standard Provence offering but executed at a high level, with attractive scents of crushed stone accenting peach, melon and lime-like notes. Just who owns this wine estate may be in the hands of a French court, but the winemaking is firmly under the control of the Perrin family and reflects their high standards of quality.
