Château Miraval Muse a New Organic Rosé this Summer

Contributor blog post by Susan Manfull:

Marc Perrin of Château de Beaucastel fame dropped by The Pierre Hotel in Manhattan’s Upper East Side this past week for a chat with a small group of wine writers. The rendezvous was part of a new partnership between the iconic hotel and the renowned Château Miraval in Provence, the estate propelled into the international spotlight when it was purchased by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and, later, when their inaugural (2012) rosé, made in partnership with the Perrin family.

The winemaking operation was constructed underneath the once famous music recording location “Studio Miraval,” where Pink Floyd recorded their album “The Wall.”  It is equally important to note that the wine will be certified organic, as the estate had dropped the claim back in 2012.

It was love at first sight when my family and I arrived in the charming village of Lourmarin for a short vacation, nearly 20 years ago. We returned home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the next thing I knew we were planning a much longer sojourn in that village and making arrangements to enroll our daughter in the local school there. That led to buying a maison de village— actually two, then a courtyard, a parking spot, and a bergerie— in our favorite Provençal village where we (readily) adopted that certain joie de vivre, established dear friendships, and, to this day, endeavor to blend in with the crowd at Café Gaby.

We no longer own property in Lourmarin, but we continue to hang our hats there frequently and gather fodder for our souls and for The Modern Trobaors and Provence WineZine. There is never a shortage.

The Modern Trobaors , conceived in 2008, is about all things Provence: its markets, hilltop villages, lavender, art, literature, culture, history, food, wine, and news. Provence WineZine, launched in August 2014, focuses on wines from the regions of Provence and the Southern Rhône Valley—with a special emphasis on Provence's world-renowned rosés—and the men and women who make them.
