On the nose, ‘Fleur de Miraval’ opens with delicate aromas of acacia, blood orange, pink grapefruit and subtle notes of sweet pastries. On the palate it is poised, with bright acidity giving great tension to the wine. The elegant flavours of almond and candied orange peel are well balanced with a saline freshness and a fine, delicate mousse.
Fleur de Miraval is a fusion of the skills and expertise of three families. This impressive triumvirate includes the Jolie-Pitts of Miraval, the Perrins of Beaucastel fame and the renowned Champagne grower and producer Rodolphe Péters of Pierre Péters. Friends Marc Perrin and Rodolphe Péters wanted to create a Champagne that combined the complexity of Chardonnay and the vibrancy of a young Pinot Noir. Having struggled to find what they were looking for in a rosé Champagne, in 2015 “we created the wine we couldn’t buy" says Marc. ‘Fleur de Miraval’ has its cellars in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and is the only Champagne house to produce solely Rosé Champagne.
