Miraval’s fame spreads to its owners, Hollywood film stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie—but do not let this put you off. The estate is expertly run by the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and as such it is the only rosé to have made the Wine Spectator Top 100 list of the Best Wines. Our Club Tasting Panel raved about this wine at first taste, calling it ‘the perfect summer aperitif, light, refreshing yet dry … full of flavours’, particularly at the Club price which for Members is only £15.75 a bottle, delivered to your door.
It matches beautifully with summery delicacies including salmon (ceviche, poached or smoked), fruits de mer platter, baked fish with fennel, pasta with light sauce (fresh tomato, prawns), rare rack of lamb, charcuterie, olives and fresh, grassy olive oil, parma ham (especially with peaches and figs), Provençal stuffed vegetables, fresh tomato salad, goat’s cheese, strawberries and fromage frays. It really is the perfect summer wine.
