Fleur de Miraval Exclusivement Rosé 2nd Edition Champagne
Born of a partnership between Hollywood celebrity Brad Pitt and winemakers Rodolphe Péters and Marc Perrin, Fleur de Miraval is devoted exclusively to the production of rosé Champagne.
The ER2 is produced using the saignée method and sees the Chardonnay-based Champagne blended with Pinot Noir rosé wine. Aromas of blood orange, cherries, toasted bread and grapefruit preface the NV Exclusivement Rosé 2, a medium to full-bodied, vinous and incisive wine that's rich and muscular, with incisive acids and a long, chalky finish. Based on the challenging 2017 vintage, it's a very fine success.
