Fleur de Miraval is an iconic Champagne created with the utmost love and passion by three immensely famous families… First up, there’s the owners of Château Miraval, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, whose celebrity cachet speaks for itself and whose Provence rosé is adored around the world. Secondly, there’s the highly esteemed Perrin family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s legendary Château de Beaucastel. And rounding out this dream triumvirate, comes Rodolphe Péters of Champagne Pierre Péters, one of the most respected growers in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and an estate that has been a family home for six generations. These three parties have come together to create a truly sensational rosé Champagne.
The rosé part being Pinot Noir from Vertus made as a rosé de saignée blended just before bottling to keep the notion of youthful red fruity freshness. It shows a very gentle bright rosé colour and a vivid mousse with fine bubbles. The nose starts out elegantly – layered and nuanced with chalky notes, fresh hazelnut, marzipan, fresh butter, pink citrus and lemongrass. After some time in the glass the Pinot enters with aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry and pain d´épice. The palate is nicely built, showing great flavour intensity and an invigorating freshness. It´s classically bone dry with a chalky presence , balanced by a mellow creaminess. Flavours of marzipan, confit de citron and peach with layers of mature nuttiness and pastry. Elegantly built with great persistency and precision on the finish.
