Description & Technical Information
-
The idea of FLEUR DE MIRAVAL sprang from the association of the two families, who had already united the wine world with that of the arts through the introduction of Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé in 2012, and a third family with roots in Champagne for six generations: the Péters family. The Péters family, established in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, have been making Champagne from their own grapes since 1919. Today Rodolphe Péters runs the 50 acre state, 40 of which are Grand Cru vineyards mainly around Le Mesnil-sur-Oger in the Côte des Blancs. Rodolphe's Champagne is sold in some 70 countries around the world and delight all lovers of great Blanc de Blancs Champagnes. Rodolphe has long been a fan of the wines of Château de Beaucastel and is close to the Perrin family.

"Fleur de Miraval Rosé is the culmination of five years of work, research and tasting done in the utmost secrecy", Rodolphe Péters adds. "It is also a very exclusive wine as only 20000 bottles were produced for this first edition."

25% of the blend is Pinot Noir from Vertus, the phenolics of which were managed by using the saignée method. For the Chardonnay, 25% of the blend comes from the 2016 harvest from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and other villages in the Côte des Blancs, adding citrus zest and freshness. For added complexity, 25% of the blend was from Rodolphe’s ‘perpetual reserve’ system (which has wines dating back to 2007). The remaining 25% of the base wine is made up of seven year old Blanc de Blancs purchased ‘sur latte’. This process, known as ‘remise en cercle’, involves uncorking the Blanc de Blancs and emptying all the bottles into a tank where the wine is then de-gassed and added to the base wine. While extremely expensive, this process brings texture, complexity and richness to the blend. After blending, the base wines were bottled and aged on lees for three years.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Cote des Blancs
Grape Varieties: 25% Pinot Noir, 75% Chardonnay
Dosage: 4.5 g/l
Disgorged: June 2020
Drink: Now to 2028

Tasting Note: 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.

“Brangelina's blend of 75% Chardonnay (30-year-old vines) and 25% Pinot Noir from younger vines on the Côte des Blancs was made by Rodolphe Péters of Champagne Pierre Péters in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. As with their popular still Miraval pink from Provence, the Perrin family is also involved. The Pinot Noir is from Vertus, the phenolics of which were managed by using the saignée method. For the Chardonnay, 25% of the blend comes from the 2016 harvest from Le Mesnil and other villages in the Côte des Blancs while 25% of the blend was from Rodolphe’s ‘perpetual reserve’ system (which has wines dating back to 2007). The remaining 25% of the base wine is made up of a seven-year-old bought-in Blanc de Blancs already in bottle. The bottles had to be uncorked and emptied into a tank where the wine is then de-gassed and added to the base blend. After blending, the base wine was bottled and aged on lees for three years. The champagne was disgorged in June 2020, and bottled with a dosage of 4.5 g/l. To guard against lightstrike, the clear-glass bottles have been lacquered with black. Packaging is equally expensive with a cute little black and gold necktie, the bottle in a luxurious palest-pink box lined with black. I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised by the price.
Not sure I'd have picked this as a rosé without the clue on the label. It's another of those rosés that's a very pale golden apricot colour. And the mousse certainly isn't urgent. There is a bit of development on the nose, which to me smells more Pinot than Chardonnay, oddly. The finish is bone dry and persistent and the whole still has a little bit of chewiness after a particularly smooth texture. It is far from the best-value pink champagne out there but it is elegant, and not a con. Definitely not good-value but very luxurious.”

“An extraordinary achievement this, made by the famously difficult saignée method, yet with a wonderful onion skin colour and poised aromas of lemongrass, small red berried fruit and pink grapefruit. Rodolphe Péters from the eponymous Champagne house in Le Mesnil sur Oger demonstrates why he is seen as one of the very finest winemakers in Champagne, coaxing wonderful complexity from his reserve wines (aged in a solera) and ensuring definition and purity from the base wines, the purity and elegance of the 25% Pinot Noir component quite breathtaking. Despite the relatively modest time on lees (three years), there is definite pedigree here, and, given the aspiration to forge a new style of rosé, a triumphant aura of complexity and latent potential. Rodolphe already has a reputation for making some of the finest Chardonnay-based Champagnes; now the inspired partnership with the Perrins of Beaucastel, who, it has to be admitted, know a thing or two about red wine, has yielded a hugely impressive debut for the Fleur de Miraval. Behind these two winemaking giants there is the owner, a certain Brad Pitt, who has achieved a degree of success elsewhere (!) but who has been surprisingly hands-on with this project, as of course he is at sister company Miraval in Provence. Not a bad team, all in all. What’s more, this wine is appreciably different to the other prestige rosé Champagnes on the market, without in any way losing out in terms of profundity, or, at a more basic level, the power to give pleasure. The very high expectations have been matched... and then some!”

“The NV Fleur de Miraval Exclusivement Rosé 1 is the first release from a new Champagne house formed as a partnership between Rodolphe Péters, Marc Perrin and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt that focuses just on Rosé Champagne. In developing Fleur de Miraval, Péters and Perrin observed that they were generally not happy with the way most Rosé Champagnes age, especially the Pinot components, so they set out to create a Champagne that essentially blends young Pinot with Chardonnay from both the base vintage and older vintages. The debut release of Fleur de Miraval is 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir. Chardonnay components are equal parts base vintage 2016, a perpetual reserve that goes back to 2007 and bottled 2008 and 2009 Champagne purchased sur-lattes (already in bottle, but not disgorged). The Pinot Noir is from Vertus, just south of the Côte des Blancs, vinified as a saignée, and then added to a base of white wine.

In tasting, Fleur di Miraval is bright, taut and focused. The cranberry, orange zest, chalk and floral notes sizzle with energy. Not surprisingly, one of the inspirations for Fleur de Miraval is Krug Rosé, and that influence is evident in its style, weight and flavor profile. Because of its recent disgorgement, Fleur di Miraval is extremely tight, but it opens nicely over several hours. This is an impressive debut. It will be interesting to see what future releases bring. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. ”
