Coming from plots on the French Riviera, surrounded by olive trees and pine trees, Studio by Miraval is strongly influenced by the sea sprays and the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea. These salty soils give the wine a unique character and an amazing balance. Although Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are separated they still jointly own the property, and the wines are made in partnership with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel.
Miraval is a Rosé specialist with a story unlike any other. The property covers 500 hectares of land in the heart of Provence near the town of Correns and is literally its own private valley with woodland, streams and abundance of native fauna. In the heart of this valley lies the Chateau, Cellars and a stunning terraced vineyard. Natural clay and chalk soils compliment warm days and cool nights to bring freshness and delicacy to the grapes ripened on these hillsides and the cascading stone walled terraces that hold these vines have now been lovingly restored.
In 1970 the Miraval property was purchased by the well- known jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier who turned it in to a recording studio – Le Studio de Miraval. There a number of talented musicians including Pink Floyd, Sting, Sade, The Cranberries and The Gypsy Kings came to record. More recently the property has been purchased by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who have partnered with the Perrin family of Southern Rhone fame to manage the viticulture and winemaking for the Pitt - Jolie family.
Clonal selection, plant husbandry and vinification techniques have all gone under the meticulous Perrin microscope. The resultant wines are a wonderfully gentle expression of this stunning terroir, oh so elegant and refined with an excellent thread of acidity and beautiful colour. Now rated as among the world’s best still Rosé wines.
