Ben Tollestrup rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Jolie-Pitt & Perrin Rosé from Château Miraval is an accessible and relatively complex wine. I recommend it for spring sipping with quiche, scallops or roast chicken. The nose offers strawberry, honeydew melon, yogurt, and nectarine. The palate adds underripe pineapple, burnt toast and citrus blossom. If you were lucky enough to nab a bottle or two, I wouldn’t wait much longer. Open it on a nice warm evening.
Dianne Fisher Sommelier, ISG rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I am a promoter of dry rosé however, I don't drink them very often. The shape of this Miraval bottle and light salmon pink colour caught my eye on the shelf, but I did not buy. Then I found out about the joint venture of BranGalina and the Perrin family and thought this was worth a try. The wine is a welcomed change on a snow covered day in Canada. Its like a bit of sun dappled southern France in a glass. I love the dryness, white pepper and soft raspberry notes.

Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Starpower aside this is a nice wine. Beautiful pink colour in a very sexy bottle. Medium body and bone dry. The sweetness came in the aromas - strawberry, honey, blossom, and sweet spice. I didn't get a lot of sweetness in the mouth. A little green and heat on the finish suggests this wine might need another year or two in the bottle. Good thing I bought 2! Enjoyed with Grilled chicken and mixed green salad. Seafood would be it's best friend though.




Natalie's Review

Miraval Rosé 2012, A.C., Côtes De Provence, France: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have just launched their first wine, a lovely, pink petal, bone-dry rose from Provence. The couple owns the winery and estate Château Miraval, even though you'll find no reference to them on the label. This wine doesn't need to ride on the back of their celebrity: it stands alone as a terrific, refreshing rose with aromas of small field strawberries, orange zest and light spices. Should I add though that there's a hint of drama on the nose, with a surprise twist finish? Sure to be a box office hit at your liquor store. Pair with planked salmon, pate, roast chicken, and of course, movie night. May I suggest Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Drink: 2013-2015. 342584 13% XD 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 91/100.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
