Miraval Rose 2012 – 90 Points Wine Spectator
“Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released their first wine, a 2012 rose from their Provence estate, Chateau Miraval. In a blind tasting of a flight of Provencal roses at Wine Spectator’s New York office, the wine was refined and elegant, with pure flavors of dried red berry and tangerine, and a focused finish with flint and spice notes. It scored 90 points, or outstanding, on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale.”
Beautiful light pale pink color. On the nose, fantastic bouquet with delicate aromas of white fruits, just-picked strawberries and floral notes. The mouth is complex with raspberry and wild strawberry notes, wild herbs, citrus and wet stone flavors. It has a refreshing acidity, thanks to the altitude of the vineyards, and a round, long, vibrant finish.
It’s a gorgeous bottle. My curiosity is peaked. The alcohol by volume is 13.0%, and if first reviews are any indication of this wines popularity, it looks like Miraval Rose will continue to perform extremely well for some time to come.
