Miraval, the ‘world’s best rosé’: 2021 vintage: only £199 per case of 12 bottles delivered


90/100 – Decanter

The 2021 Miraval rosé is another delicious vintage. This, the best rosé in the world according to critics including those at Wine Spectator, is deemed ‘the perfect Provençal rosé’ by the leading rosé connoisseur at Berry Bros & Rudd, who notes that, ‘In the past I’ve described Miraval’s peerless Provence rosé as “dangerously drinkable” and the 2021 is no different. It is pale, almost imperceptibly pink – the perfect colour for rosé. This is gloriously scented with wild strawberries, forced rhubarb and garrigue. There’s more soft red fruit on the palate, with a delicate peach note and wet-stone minerality. Wines for whiling away a summer afternoon don’t get better than this. Ready to drink now.’

The charming terraced vineyards of Miraval, surrounded by forests and garrigue of thyme and olives date from Roman times and produce what is seen as perfection in Provençal rosé, which is crisper and drier than rosés from elsewhere. Miraval is palest pink, with an intense nose of perfumed pear blossom, roses and cherry candy. The palate is soft and round, with notes of wild strawberries, berries, herbs and and a limestone minerality expressive of the terroir, giving the wine great freshness and a hint of salt with a long, perfumed finish—and it has plenty of structure, creating a rosé wine which the local refer to as ‘vins de gastronomie’.
