The 2020 Miraval rosé is delicious. This, the best rosé in the world according to critics including those at Wine Spectator, is deemed ‘the perfect Provençal rosé’ by the connoisseurs at Berry Bros & Rudd, who note that, ‘As ever, Miraval doesn’t disappoint. From the moment you pour the salmon-coloured liquid into your glass, you are met with red fruit flavours encased by acidity and a textured mouthfeel. Strawberries, rhubarb, peach yogurt and nectarines all mingle with attractive flinty, stony notes. This is a wine you could sip on its own, or with food; there’s real depth here. Clean and fresh, 2020 Miraval is just the sort of wine you want in your cellar for the summer.’

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 white flowers, red berries, fresh crushed strawberries and Morello cherries. 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’.
