"Pale orange-pink. Highly expressive strawberry, nectarine, honeydew and lavender scents, along with building floral, orange zest and salty mineral qualities. Silky and focused on the palate, offering densely packed citrus and pit fruit and red berry flavors that unfurl on the back half. Finishes dry and minerally, displaying superb persistence and resonating floral and mineral notes."
"A bright personality, this wine is a reflection of its terroir on the coast facing the Mediterranean, a land of schists completely free of limestone. Working with the ocean spray, the dry hillside air and generous sunshine, the salty soil helps shape the singular, elegant character of a young vineyard with a passionate heart.
The Clos Mireille Rosé is an expression of a blend of various grapes typical of the Côtes de Provence appellation: Grenache, the majority grape, chosen for its full-bodied texture, Cinsault for its well-known softness and Syrah for its fruity roundness.
The wine is a very pale pink highlighted, depending on the vintage, with golden, orange and even vermilion tints. Its bouquet reveals fresh fruit (mango, melon) punctuated with lemony notes. On the palate, its freshness develops through citrus aromas around a resolutely mineral core before ending with a subtly persistent finish." - Winery
