“The 2017 Miraflors Rosé is another beauty that's loaded with fresh, crisp, vibrant strawberry and raspberry fruit. Clean, pure, textured and elegant on the palate, with gorgeous purity, it's a rocking rosé that does everything right. The blend is 70% Mourvèdre and 30% Grenache Gris brought up all in tank. Hats off to vigneron Jean-Marc Lafage for another smoking good rosé!“
"Unusual frosted skittle-like bottle with Vinolok glass stopper. 50% Mourvèdre (25 years old) and 50% Grenache Gris (75 years) and Noir. Stony soils (galets roulés) near the Med. Vineyard planted east–west to reduce the sun on the fruit. Fermented at 16 ºC in a reductive environment to protect the fruit.
Pale Provençal pink. Very pretty colour. Very scented with pretty red fruits on the nose. I am tasting this in a bleak UK winter but this takes me straight to the Mediterranean. Cool dry and so fresh, with the finest of chalky textures to make it more than just a light fruity pink wine. Peachy and gentle on the palate and with a long fresh, dry finish. Pretty but not insubstantial. 16.5/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Named after an old estate located in the heart of Domaine Lafage, Mas Miraflors, the Miraflors Rosé is sourced from old vines of Grenache Gris, nearing 80 years old, planted near the Mediterranean. Added to this is some Mourvedre that Jean-Marc planted here about 15 years ago. This a direct press rosé with the color coming from the skins of the pink Grenache Gris berries, and naturally, from the much darker Mourvedre. It is aged in tank for 4 months before bottling.
