Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé (£19.99)

Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie helped start the rosé revolution in 2011 when they bought the 500ha Château Miraval in Côtes de Provence for a reported US$60m. The property once belonged to French jazz musician Jacques Loussier and boasted a recording studio where Pink Floyd put the finishing touches on The Wall in 1979.

While no longer together, Brangelina continue to make wine with consultant Marc Perrin. Their flagship rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Rolle grown on clay and limestone soils, 5% of which is barrel fermented, resulting in a pretty pale pink with notes of wild strawberry, raspberry and peach with a hint of flint.

Miraval’s distinctive bell-shaped bottle is now a wildly popular choice for Provence pinks. In homage to the estate’s musical roots, last year the estate released Studio by Miraval, an entry-level rosé with wide distribution priced at £10. They are also working on a rosé Champagne in collaboration with small grower Pierre Peters.

“We will launch a rosé Champagne under the Miraval name, and we will create the only Champagne house that only makes rosé. We’re going to try and push the quality of rosé as far as possible in Champagne,” Perrin told Wine Spectator.
