New rosés from Mirabeau en Provence

I’ve written before here about rosés from ambitious, innovative new negociant Mirabeau. Here are the latest releases: now four wines in the range, and they each have their place.

Mirabeau en Provence 2017 Côtes de Provence, France
13% alcohol
Screwcapped (tin/saran liner). Pale salmon pink in colour with a nice rounded, slightly creamy texture and appealing redcurrant and strawberry hints. This is textured but also has some brightness, with a touch of mandarin, too. 87/100

Mirabeau en Provence Pure Rosé 2017 Côtes de Provence, France
13% alcohol
Sealed with a DIAM 3. Beautifully packaged this has a slight smoky, spicy framing to it that’s really attractive. Delicate, nicely focused and seamless, with tangerine, fine herbs, a twist of black plum and some cranberry brightness on the finish. Lovely wine. 91/100

Mirabeau en Provence Etoile Rosé 2017 Côtes de Provence, France
13% alcohol
Very pale in colour. Bright, focused and quite mineral, with a smoky, savoury, finely spicy framing to the lemon and mandarin orange notes. Crisp, dry and quite stylish with a hint of pepper on the finish. 90/100

Mirabeau La Folie Sparkling Rosé NV Provence, France
Very pale in colour. Bright and lemony with some pear and peach notes. A really pretty, pure wine with moderate fizziness. 87/100
