Domaine Mirabeau La Réserve Rosé

La Réserve, Maison Mirabeau’s first cuvée from Domaine Mirabeau, is a statement of Stephen and Jeany’s hopes and dreams. This limited edition, complex gastronomic rosé wine hails from their estate, which is nestled in the nature reserve at the foothill of the Maures mountains and is farmed using regenerative practices. 50% of profits from La Réserve are donated to the Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, a foundation co-founded by Stephen to bring more information and research to this approach for prospective farmers and the general public.

Working the lees through periodic stirring enhances the texture of the wine, whilst the unoaked component maintains a lovely minerality and delivers aromas of yellow peach, candied apricot and freesia harmonising with notes of brioche and orange zest. A light grip and a subtle saline note provide length and balance, completing its gastronomic character. Beautiful integrated acidity across the palate, and a slightly smoky finish with notes of dried apricot.

Range:
Origin: Côtes de Provence
Varieties: 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Rolle
Site: 150m altitude
Soil: Permian Sandstone, Micro-Schist, Clay
Vinification: Night harvested, followed by gentle pressing with inert gas to preserve the aroma precursors and limit phenolic extraction. Static cold settling, without fining, followed by temperature controlled fermentation and early barrelling down to optimize oak integration. Half of the wine matured in three different lightly toasted 400L French oak barrels for 6 months, with periodic lees stirring, before a final blending and gentle filtration. No animal based products are used during the vinification process.
Analysis: Alcohol 13,5% | pH 3.34 | RS <1g/L
Allergens: Contains sulphites
Food pairings: La Réserve would pair magnificently with vegetarian dishes, sustainably caught seafood, light meats and creamy cheeses. In spite of being a concentrated Rosé it would cut neatly through spice and richer food.
