A Taste of Provence: Miraval Rosé

Looking for a good rosé to sip this summer? Here are a few words I thought I’d never say: try Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Château Miraval Cotes de Provence rosé. Last year, the famous pair released the first vintage of rosé from their South of France estate (read more about the Château here), made in partnership with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel. The wine comes from a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah and Rolle. And it’s pretty good.

Clearly, Brad and Angelina bought  a good vineyard 😉 The rosé is light pale pink and has a lovely floral nose. It retails between $18 to $22 (I found my bottle at Whole Foods), which is a little pricey for this type of rosé. You can definitely find rosé of similar quality at a lower price point, but you’re also paying a premier for the Brandgelina nose…

Do you have a favourite summer rosé? Cheers!
