This could be the perfect Provencal rosé – the palest pink with aromas of wild strawberries, raspberries and a touch of fennel. Red fruit and citrus on the palate, this is perfectly poised between easy drinking for an aperitif but some structure that would cope admirably with a light lunch. This is dangerously drinkable!

The latest Miraval Rosé vintage, 2015 surpasses all others in quality. This rosé wine is genuinely good and worth every penny. Miraval Rosé is the only rosé to have appeared in the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list of the Best Wines (2013). Jeb Dunnuck of the Wine Advocate called it "a killer rosé.” Miraval the property and Miraval the wine capture the essence of Provençale charm, the epitome, perhaps, of Matisse’s ‘Luxe, calme et volupté’. The terraced vineyards date from Roman times, as indeed do the surrounding forests, the environment of scrubland (aka garrigue) thyme and olives, providing a most welcome refuge, no doubt, for Hollywood A- listers seeking to brush up their winemaking knowledge. It seems, indeed, that Brad and Angelina are more hands-on than one may have expected, their hands expertly guided around the winery by the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel fame.

The Lafarges have managed to make slightly more wine than in 2012, but still only a third of a crop. They began on 3rd October and picked for 10 days. They report very good phenolic maturity, slightly low sugar levels, no rot, and very pure wines giving an excellent expression of terroir. Michel thinks that they will open up early but last a long time.
Thibault’s two domaines, based in Moulin à Vent and Nuits-St Georges, both returned paltry yields of 16 hl/ha in 2012. Among the Côte d’Or appellations, the Hautes Côtes, Nuits and Gevrey-Chambertin suffered in particular. All of which is a great shame, given the quality of the wines which have been made. Even where Thibault purchases grapes (Aloxe-Corton and Chambolle- Musigny), Thibault makes the major decisions in the vineyard management. His own vines are farmed biodynamically, with ploughing by horse.
This long-established family domaine impresses us more and more with every vintage. The Pinsons have always picked by hand and they are now using natural yeasts for the vinification process. Most wines are vinified in stainless steel, with a small percentage in barrel for the top wines, then matured in barrel for up to a year. The only bad news in 2012 is the quantity: 20% down for straight Chablis, 25-30% less across the Premier Cru vineyards and minus 50% on the Grand Cru which was affected by frost.
There is a marvellous sense of energy in Thibault Liger-Belairs 2010 wines, perhaps his finest vintage to date. This is a vintage where the wines express the characters of their terroirs very well. Thibault decided on a longer than usual vinification but with very little active extraction and fewer stems than in 2009. Where Thibault purchases grapes (Aloxe-Corton, Chambolle-Musigny) his team manages the vineyard work after the initial pruning.
