For the third time this year, Mirabeau has made it into a Top 10 Rosé list, this time from the British national newspaper The Independent. Kate Hilpern writes: Not so long ago, more serious wine drinkers considered rosé as unsophisticated and unworthy. But today, it’s never been more popular, especially in the summer, with rosé now accounting for 11% of all wine sold in British supermarkets.
Mirabeau Côtes de Provence Rosé 2013. This creamy textured, yet refreshing, salmon-pink rosé is made by British expats Stephen and Jeany Cronk, who have come as close to bottling summer as possible. It is made from the classic Rhone grapes Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.
