(AG=92) Pale brilliant orange. Bright and sharply focused on the mineral-driven nose, displaying intense citrus pith, strawberry, pomegranate and floral qualities. Taut and sharply delineated on the palate, offering an array of fresh red berry and citrus fruit flavors that turn spicier on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and mineral cut on the persistent finish, which leaves a suave candied lavender note behind. (RP=90) Bottled just a few weeks before my visit, Miraval's 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose was in fine form. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Rolle, it boasts floral and melon aromas, while on the palate, it's medium-bodied, plump and fleshy, with a zesty, tangerine-tinged finish.
