Critic Review

Decanter Magazine: 93Pts

"Famous thanks to top-pedigree winemaking from the Marc Perrin of Beaucastel (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) celebrity, as well as the allure of Hollywood in the estate’s 50% ownership by Brad Pitt, shared with the Stoli Group. Affectionately nicknamed 'Pitt Juice' by a close friend, Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle are combined in an impressive organic blend that has precision and elegant intensity. All the resonance of a classic Provençal style revealing layers of spice, fruit and floral nuances. Structured, lingering and presented in the characterful clear bottle – a quintessential summer classic that I’d describe as 'Provence plus'."

About the Producer

Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque town. Tucked away in its own private valley, the Château is surrounded by ancient woodlands and olive groves. Current owner Brad Pitt partnered with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel fame in 2012. Since then the family have been responsible for the wine production and vineyard development of the estate. Their continued dedication to improving quality, in both the vineyards and the cellar, have seen the wines go from strength to strength, with Château Miraval today considered one of the great names of Provence.

Vineyard and Winery

Château Miraval has 50 hectares of grapes grown on the estate. The majority of the fruit for this wine comes from the Château's three best parcels - Muriers, Longue and Romarin. The remainder is sourced from within the Correns region, just north of Brignoles in the heart of Provence. The terraced vineyards are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don't.

Grapes were harvested by hand in the cool, early hours of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes made it into the rosé. The Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle parcels were gently pressed to extract just the right amount of colour, while the Syrah was made using the saignée method. The wine was fermented separately with 95% in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks and 5% in oak barrels and then blended post fermentation.
