"Limpid orange-pink. Intensely perfumed aromas of fresh red berries, nectarine, blood orange and pungent flowers, along with subtle hints of smoky minerals, fennel and vanilla that emerge with air. Densely packed but surprisingly lithe thanks to a core of minerality that drives intense, deeply concentrated strawberry, cherry, orange zest and candied lavender flavors. Finishes extremely long and with sharp delineation, displaying lingering floral and vibrant mineral notes. This wine was built for cellaring and its potential is pretty clear to see. Fermented in concrete eggs, aged in 600-liter oak barrels and bottled in magnums.

The Wine
75 Grand Cru Chardonnay, 25 Vertus 1er Cru Pinot Noir, saigne method A blend of perpetual cuve started in 2007 with the addition of thousands of mature wines added en cercles. Stainless steel fermented, aged three years en tirage before release. The ros here comes from Vertus 1er Cru, in the southern part of the Cte de Blancs, which was known historically for having Pinot Noir planted as well as Chardonnay. The ros is 25 of the blend and made in the Saigne method, which accounts for only 3 of Ros Champagnes.

History
Champagne Fleur de Miraval is the first Champagne house dedicated exclusively to the production of Ros. This project, five years in the making, is a collaboration between three families: iconic winemaking families Champagne Pierre Pters, in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Famille Perrin of Chteau de Beaucastel in the Rhne valley and Chteau de Miraval owners, the Jolie-Pitt family.
Fleur de Miraval is singular in both its ethos exclusively Ros and production. The house, located in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, focuses solely on the Cte des Blancs. This first edition is 75 Grand Cru Chardonnay, from Cramant, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil,
blended with 25 Pinot Noir from Vertus 1er Cru, made in the saigne method. This is a true Cte des
Blancs Ros.

Creation & Philosophy
The Chardonnay comes from a perpetual cuve started in 2007, a system that winemaker Rodolphe Pters has perfected at his family domaine. In addition to the complexity gained by older wines held in perpetual reserve, thousands of bottles of perfectly stored and finished mature champagnes were opened, tasted, and blended into Fleur de Miraval. This process, remise en cercles, further deepens the flavor and complexity of this extraordinary wine. Dealing with older reserves is labor-intensive and relies on the skill of the winemaker to ensure that the best result is achieved. It is a method that Pters developed for his own centennial Hritage cuve with huge success.

Our choices for our Champagne quickly turned towards the noble autolytic aromas of Chardonnay almond, hazelnut, an elegant butteriness - all supported by superb tension and incredible freshness, explains Rodolphe. The saigne method for making ros is rare in Champagne and notoriously difficult: It is more art than science to get the balance of flavors and texture correct. We very quickly agreed that we wanted to make just ros, but it had to be a ros that represented who we are - an exceptional ros that had never been produced before, said Pters. Every detail of Fleur de Miraval has been considered
from the exacting and singular method of production to the unique lacquered bottle, designed to protect the Champagne from got de lumire or taste of light, a flaw that that Champagne is particularly sensitive to. With Fleur de Miraval Ros, Champagne has a new standard-bearer, an elegant wine, and a singular experience.
