Fleur De Miraval Rose Champagne ER1 (First Release)

12 units available online.
Product description

Champagne Fleur de Miraval is the first Champagne house dedicated exclusively to the production of Rosé. This project was five years in the making and is a collaboration between three families: iconic wine making families Champagne Pierre Péters in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Famille Perrin of Château de Beaucastel in the Rhône valley and Château de Miraval owners, the Pitt family.

Fleur de Miraval is singular in its ethos, exclusively Rosé and production. The house in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger focuses solely on the Côte des Blancs. This first edition is 75% Grand Cru Chardonnay, from Cramant, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil, blended with 25% Pinot Noir from Vertus 1er Cru, made in the saignée method. This is a true Côte des Blancs Rosé.

Total Production: 20,000 bottles of the first edition, named ER1 for Edition Rosé, first year. ER1 is sandblasted on the bottle above the label and can start a collection.

94 Points - Decanter

This is an extraordinary achievement, made by the famously difficult saignée method, with a beautiful 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 extraordinary 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 a definite pedigree given the aspiration to forge a new style of Rosé, a triumphant aura of complexity and latent potential. The very high expectations have been matched, and then some!

94 Points - Wine Spectator

 A pale Rosé Champagne, lightly copper in colour, with an appealing nose of ripe fruit and spice. Lightly mouthwatering and satin-like on the palate, a harmonious version that layers ripe notes of white cherry, blood orange sorbet and nectarine with savoury accents of salted almond, oyster shell and saffron. Drink now through 2028.
