Mirabeau, La Folie Sparkling Provence Rosé, wine review
Every Monday Tom Cannavan of wine-pages.com chooses a new wine of the week. For 14th May 2018 the Mirabeau, La Folie Sparkling Provence Rosé is his choice. The team behind Mirambeau explain that they created this, their first commercially available sparkling wine, at the request of Waitrose, and experimented with both the traditional method (with second fermentation on the lees in individual bottles) and the charmat or tank method, as used in Prosecco to make a fresher and fruitier style of fizz. This blend of Syrah and Grenache is really successful of its style, only gently sparkling and with some residual sugar to give a sweetness that matches its charming summer pudding berries and floral profile, so delicate and quaffable for summer in the garden, and of excellent quality.
