Mirabeau Etoile Provence Rosé
Delicate, luminous pale lychee colour with some silver reflexes. A complex rosé with a wide aromatic palette on the nose, whilst being elegant and subtle.
Mirabeau Étoile originates from the beautiful region of Mont Sainte Victoire. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, pear and white peach, tied together by a hint of white flowers.
Pretty and ethereal in the mouth, with a vibrant acidity providing a backbone, that leads to a mineral expressive finish with refreshing citrus notes. Long and elegant. With his gastronomic DNA, Etoile will be a great partner to many foods or an aperitif to savour with delectable canapés.

Awarded 93 points. Vivid orange-pink. Potent, mineral-accented blood orange, red currant and nectarine aromas are complemented by suggestions of succulent flowers and herbs. Penetrating and energetic in the mouth, offering sappy red berry, citrus and pit fruit flavors. A spine of juicy acidity adds structure and back-end lift. Deftly plays power off finesse, closing minerally and extremely long, with resonating floral and pit fruit notes.Josh Raynolds, Vinous
This has more weight than most, and a gorgeous array of fruit. Think raspberries and the tropics.Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph
Mirabeau is a classy brand that brings sophistication back to a wonderful bottle of rosé. Long gone are the days where you pick any old bottle off the shelves; Mirabeau is the kind of rosé that you go out of your way to find. Made in Provence (as you may have guessed), this wine encompasses all of the qualities which you’d expect from a sun-drenched vineyard. It’s smooth, fruity and, as Mirabeau likes to describe “it’s like the good life in a glass”. We can’t disagree there.Lauren Noble, The Idle Man
