"Bright, tightly textured and crisp, this wine is full of fresh fruit. Red-currant flavors and tangy, spicy acidity come from the 90% Grenache in the blend. The top rosé from this producer, it's full of richness and concentration. Drink from late 2020. -RV"

"Shimmering orange-pink. Ripe, mineral-accented tangerine, red berries, peach and pungent flowers on the expansive nose. Pliant and impressively concentrated, showing fine definition to the juicy raspberry, nectarine, orange zest and honeysuckle flavors. The mineral note repeats strongly on the impressively long finish, which displays gentle grip and floral-driven persistence."
"A fruit-forward nose with soft, green apple and pear notes coming through alongside lemon and ripe apricot. It’s definitely a different style to the Pure and Classic wines in Mirabeu's range, with a tangy acidity giving freshness and energy, plus a focus on stone fruit and crunchy citrus flavours. This limited-edition bottling was designed to be more of a gastronomic wine with a dominance of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah – the same blend each year. From grapes grown in the higher altitude vineyards around Montagne Ste-Victoire, southeast of Aix-en-Provence."
