Review: 2018 Studio by Miraval Rose IGP

My wife had to remind me that Miraval wasn’t just a storied winery in Provence, it was also one with pop culture cred, being owned in part by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. (No idea how well that’s working now that they’ve split up.)

Today the expression of Miraval you’re most likely to encounter is this one, Studio, a rose made from cinsault, grenache, rolle, and tibouren grapes sourced from all over the region. Technically it carries an IGP designation.

And how is it? The wine is floral on the nose, but doughy, with notes of sugar cookies and churros. Mild acidity helps to lift things out of sugar-‘n’-flowers territory, but ultimately the notes of buttercups, honey-laced tea, and orange blossoms persevere. All in all, it’s an iconic expression of Provence… and perfectly approachable on a hot day.

    This was my first bottle of this particular brand; My question is how the H*ll do you open this without pliers?! Seriously!? Last one regardless of the taste.

    Same question. I was hoping there is an answer by now.

    The bottle I served 2 nights ago had a twist top.
