"High-pitched, with savory and thyme notes leading the way for watermelon rind, peach and white cherry flavors. Shows a pretty stony echo on the finish. Drink now. 90,000 cases imported. -J.M." (WS)

"Limpid orange-pink. High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries and blood orange, along with hints of honeysuckle and peach. Silky and precise in the mouth, offering nicely concentrated strawberry, tangerine and floral pastille flavors that spread out steadily on the back half. Finishes minerally and long, showing suave, floral-driven persistence. " (VM)

"This fruity rosé is produced at the property owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie along with the Perrin family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is lightly spicy and full of friendly, crisp red fruits. It can age for a few more months, so it could be enjoyed in 2018." (WE)

Winery Notes:
TERROIR:
Issued from the Château’s best parcels (Muriers, Longue, Romarin), and from selected parcels in the best terroirs of Provence. Clay and limestone vineyard, partially in terraces located at an average of 350 meters. Cool climate for the area with big temperature swings between night and day.

VINIFICATION:
The grapes are harvested exclusively in the morning and sorted twice. Destemming. ‘Pressurage direct’ for Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle. The Syrah is vinified partially using the "saignee" method. Vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats (95%) and in barrels (5%) with batonnage.

TASTING NOTES:
Beautiful, pale, petal-pink colour, elegant with bright nuances. A beautiful aromatic expression with aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers, refreshing acidity, with great minerality and a saline finish. This Miraval 2016 is a perfect interpretation of the vintage in Provence
