The wine has a beautiful pale, petal-pink colour, with bright nuances. On the nose, it has aromas of fresh redcurrants, lemons and spring flowers. It finishes with a refreshing acidity, minerality and a saline finish.
Château Miraval has 50 hectares of grapes grown on the estate. The majority of the fruit for this wine comes from the Château’s three best parcels – Muriers, Longue and Romarin. The remainder is sourced from within the Correns region, just north of Brignoles in the heart of Provence. The terraced vineyards are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don’t.
Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque town. Tucked away in its own private valley, the château is surrounded by ancient woodlands and olive groves. Following ancient Celtic and Roman occupation, the property served as a host to monastic practice and as a home to members of the French court in the 14th century. Since 2012, the Perrin family has been involved in wine production at the estate, and has overseen investment in the latest winemaking technology and innovation.
