14/05/2018 – Mirabeau, La Folie Sparkling Provence Rosé

(2018) The team behind Mirabeau explain that they created this, their first commercially available sparkling wine, at the request of Waitrose, and experimented with the traditional method (with second fermentation in individual bottles) but in the end chose 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.
