2011 Mirabeau Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1106692

From the beautiful hillside vineyards of the Côtes de Provence comes the delightful Mirabeau rosé. Not only does this wine exhibit the most exquisite rose pink hue, it carries with it classic fruit nuances of wild strawberries, raspberry, and red currant. The palate offers a combination of ripe red fruits and zesty apple, with a light creaminess on the midpalate that finishes with a quick zip of acidity. The Mirabeau rosé is a wine that tends more towards elegance than power, yet its brightness and finesse make for an undeniably classy rosé perfectly suited for Provencal-inspired picnics and dinner parties. Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. 13% abv.

A classis Provence Rose to be sure. Elegant and pure, notes of cherry and strawberry are wrapped up in zipppy acidty. Great with food, or just as an stand alone glass of wine on a sunny summer day.

Strawberry and cranberry with soft mid-palate creaminess and crisp, zesty acid that makes you reach for the bottle to refill your glass immediately!

This is a new rose for us and it was a big hit in the staff rose tasting last week. It's a great example of Provence rose with tons of strawberry, melon and minerality with a touch more mid-palate richness with a crisp finish. As our colleague Jacques Moreira says.... "rose is cool again!"
