Miraval 2013 has arrived!
We are happy to announce that the new and second vintage of the star Rose Miraval has arrived!
The first release of the rosé from their summer residence and wine estate in southeast France, made with the Perrin family of the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Château de Beaucastel and the Central Coast property Tablas Creek Vineyard, sold out quickly. It was a serious rosé which was rated No. 84 in Wine Spectator’s list of the top 100 wines of 2013, the only rosé to make the list!
The British wine magazine Decanter describes the 2013 as having “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.” 91 points.
The rosé project has gone so well, Jane Anson, writing for Decanter, reports that the movie star duo has signed up the Perrins to make a red wine “in the style of Italy’s Super Tuscans.” Not so fast. They have to plant the vines first and before they do any extensive planting, according to Marc Perrin, they’ll need to “experiment with different grape varieties, from Syrah and Mourvèdre to Cabernet Franc and others.”
Chateau Miraval Rose 2013 is available in bottles of 0.75ml and magnums.
