Mirabeau Pure Rosé AOP Côtes de Provence

Mirabeau pure

Who makes it?

Mirabeau Pure is just one of the Provencal wine offerings from the Cronk family. The range now includes at least six Provence rose wines, including the addition of the oak matured La Reserve. Plus a wonderfully floral rose based gin. They also have several rose wines sourced from outside of the Provence region. 

Thus it really could be said that Mirabeau know about French rose.

How do they make it?

Mirabeau Pure is always a typical Grenache dominant blend, and this vintage is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault. It is fermented in tank to control the temperature. Keeping the wine cool during ferment means that the fruity esters have been retained.

What does it taste like?

This version of Mirabeau rosé has a strawberry and almost dipping into tropical fruit profile. This is rolled up with some lush peach on the finish. It is dry, bone dry (less than 1 g/L sugar) but it has plenty of ripe fruit amongst the savoury mineral palate. 

It is an easy pleaser with a pale pink colour. One where the medium bodied fresh fruit takes on a silky, smooth texture as it glides along the palate.

What to drink with it?

While it is good to enjoy without food, like most Provence rosés, Pure will work very well with a wide range of flavours from seafood of any type and style through to a classic grilled herbed chicken breast.
