The Jolie-Pitt and Perrin families that made Miraval a global success story are now proud to announce a bold new project: FLEUR DE MIRAVAL, the only Champagne house exclusively devoted to Rosé Champagne. This blend of Chardonnay grapes of different ages makes up 75% of the final FLEUR DE MIRAVAL blend. The remaining 25% is from young Pinot Noir grapes, which gives the wine its subtle, pink hue. Tangy notes of red currant and red raspberry energize the delicate minerality, salinity and iodized expression of the Chardonnay grapes. The wine is then aged on the lees in the dark cellars in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for three years before being released.
Because Champagne is particularly sensitive to ultraviolet rays and sunlight, each Fleur de Miraval bottle is lacquered so that the wine is never exposed to light until the day the bottle is opened. “Fleur de Miraval Rosé is the culmination of five years of work, research and tasting done in the utmost secrecy,” notes Rodolphe Péters. “It is also a very exclusive wine as only 20000 bottles were produced for this first edition.”
