Heart-Achingly Beautiful Rosé
Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail
The Mirabeau story is one of following a dream and the pursuit of a deeply held passion for wine. In 2009, after 10 years of talking about it, we decided to swap our lives in South London for a new beginning as wine producers in the South of France. Armed with big ambitions to make a world-class rosé and willing to challenge established wisdom, we founded Mirabeau. Since then Mirabeau has collected some of the most prestigious industry awards and we are delighted that people enjoy our wines all over the world.
Provence is the most exciting place in the world to make rosé and Mirabeau specialises in this classy, lip-smackingly refreshing style of wine. We also make small quantities of white, red and sparkling pink for sale at the Mirabeau showroom in Cotignac.
Our Rosés have been crafted with a great deal of care from some of the finest, sun drenched vineyards in Provence and are a perfect aperitif as well as an accomplished gastronomic partner. People around the globe have fallen in love with Provence Rosé for its elegant, yet uncomplicated style and because it feels like the good life in a glass.
Wine is so much more than fermented grape juice, it has a special place at the centre of friendships, enriches precious family time and complements good food in a way nothing else can.
Mirabeau sets the bar very high in terms of style and quality, so you can enjoy a glass of our wine in the knowledge that you are drinking some of the best that Provence can offer. We have assembled a world-class international winemaking team and we never cease to look for improvements, no matter how small, during the winemaking process.

Common misconceptions are that rosé from Provence is a blend of red and white wine, or that it must be high in sugar. Stephen sums up the most important facts about rosé from this area and gives you a glance at grape varieties and the huge amount of hard work that goes into making it.
I know we are very spoilt here in Provence with fruit trees growing by the roadside and the fruit being pretty much a “libre service” (self-service) for the passer-by. This is certainly true for figs trees, which grow all over the village and most of the precious harvest ends up rotting on the floor. We […]
We often wonder how the little village of Cotignac so effortlessly manages to capture people’s hearts. We came to this hamlet in the “Haut Var” just over 6 years ago, after a chaotic and frustrating property search around Aix-en-Provence that left us feeling shaky about our decision to move to Provence.

A lovely Dutch couple, Anneloes and Sjors, asked if Belle could be used as a wedding wine bar after their ceremony in Provence. Marcel and I offered to serve the yummy La Folie sparkling rosé wine along with little French tarts. We got to the art gallery venue, Jas de la Rimade, at 2:30pm and […]
It’s not even the end of September and the grapes are pretty much in the cellars all over Provence, our life has moved on to winemaking and the growers are enjoying a break and time for the “chasse”, or wild boar hunting. As far as they’re concerned 2015 has been a dreamy year. Why? Because […]
