Tasting Notes

Pale peach colour with hints of bright apricot. A classical Côtes de Provence rosé, offering aromas of yellow peach, pear, freesias and strawberries. Layered and neat.

Geneous in the mouth, with a good citrus fruit dimension, yet round and harmonious. Moreish notes of cherry and raspberry make this a real crowdpleaser.

Blend – 60% Grenache, Syrah 25%, 15% Cinsault

About Mirabeau

In 2008, we had a lovely life in South West London, three healthy children and were lucky to be surrounded by friends and family. Stephen was pursuing a promising career in telecommunications, having given up his small import wine business a few years before due to difficult economic times. In spite of outside appearances, Stephen found he was really missing the world of wine and the passion he found so easily within this tight knit fraternity of people, in love with their subject. As a couple we spent many years talking about moving to France and re-entering the world of wine, yet the moment never seemed just right. What became clear to us eventually, was that the perfect moment was never going to come, and if we wanted to leave, we had to make that moment happen. When Stephen was offered a promotion up the corporate ladder, it only galvanised his thinking. The moment was now and as a family we had to make the leap. So he asked for redundancy instead to turn our long-harboured dream into reality.

Rosé had been an important feature in our lives (Stephen proposed to me over a bottle of Rosado in Mallorca!) and we were big fans of the iconic Provence pinks. The region’s dry Rosés seemed such approachable and delectable wines, perfect with or without food, surely, we couldn’t be the only people feeling so in love with this style of wine? So once the decision to leave was made we quickly started to plan for our new future in the South of France.

After selling our beloved house, which I had only recently finished renovating, we left London in August 2009 at the height of the World Financial crisis! Friends and family were bemused and worried about the timing of our move, especially as economic headwinds would now be even more severe. But by then our decision was made. With barely a word of French spoken between us, our worldly possessions were packed up on the back of a truck and we finally headed south to a small village called Cotignac, in the heart of Provence.
We came down with a bump and realised we had a lot to learn in our new home, not just the foreign language, but take note of the cultural differences in work and social life. We hunkered down and spent the remainder of that year getting our bearings, properly learning to live the Provençal way, and criss-crossing the country searching and finding the best vineyards to work with. The next step was setting up a wine business with the principal objective of making a Provence rosé that would be regarded as one of the very best from the region, while building a brand that we hoped people would grow to love.
Once we had secured the Mirabeau name – inspired from our strolls around Aix- we added veteran UK Master of Wine, Angela Muir, to the team to make sure what we were making would be excellent. In 2010, we blended our first cuvée, Mirabeau Classic, and were beyond delighted to get a listing with UK supermarket Waitrose.

With Classic building a loyal following in the UK, we soon harboured more ambitions to make a range of world-class rosé wines. Over the last 11 years we have gradually grown our award-winning range to show interesting styles of wine from this region, whilst also having a bit of fun with innovation. Since the beginning we have thrown our heart and soul into the brand and focused on building engaging and innovative communications with our customers, especially on various digital platforms. We also wanted to bring the sunshine, food and lifestyle inspiration from Provence to people far afield and invite as many of you to come on our journey as possible.

We are proud to say that Mirabeau has evolved organically to become one of the most loved French rosé brands in the UK, Holland, Australia and more recently the US. We have also consistently been rated amongst the world’s best specialist winemakers, winning a host of medals and awards. The range is now available all over the world in some of the best retailers, bars and restaurants and boasts a very loyal following. Stephen and I are happiest knowing that our wines have become an integral part of people’s lives and are synonymous with friends and family having a great time together.

2019 marked the tenth anniversary of our big move to Provence and whilst still working with our loyal group of incredible growers, we have embarked on our own experimental farming adventure at our wine estate, Domaine Mirabeau. Set in a nature reserve not far from the Golf of St Tropez and surrounded by quintessential Provençal villages, the 20-hectare estate includes 14 hectares of vines and boasts an authentic Bastide and a newer farmhouse, which we have lovingly renovated and can be rented for a close-up experience of vineyard life.

Domaine Mirabeau reflects our hopes and dreams of being stewards of our land and farming in a way that is true to our beliefs. Honouring the position of this uniquely beautiful site, we have embraced ambitious farming practices and wine making techniques. We will transition the estate towards a future of regenerative farming and much increased biodiversity over the next few years and want it to serve to help others make the change to this more sustainable practice in viticulture. Stephen has co-founded the Regenerative Viticulture Foundation to bring more information on this style of farming that has so much potential for vineyards.

We are delighted to have released our first-single estate cuvée La Réserve from the Domaine and look forward to continuing to share our journey with you all as we embark on this next chapter for us and Mirabeau.
