Château Miraval is located close to the ancient town of Correns, just to the north of Brignoles right in the heart of Provence. Its history goes some way to explain the magical aura which pervades the valley; located close to the Roman road Via Aurelia, Miraval was the site of a monastery in the Middle Ages, thereafter a refuge for the Bourbon kings. The latest incumbents are no strangers to fame and fortune; not only is Miraval the summer retreat of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but it is also the winery where they have launched a joint venture with the Perrin Family of the renowned Château de Beaucastel in the Rhône Valley.
The grapes are hand picked in 35Kg crates and then sorted. Sorting. Gentle pressing. Low temperature fermentation. Ageing in demi-muids (600 litres) and barrique (225 litres) with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees) for 50% of the cuvee.
