Fleur de Miraval shows a very gentle and bright rosé colour, a vivid mousse with fine bubbles. The nose starts out elegantly – layered and nuanced with chalky notes, roasted hazelnut, marzipan, fresh butter, pink citrus and lemongrass. After some time in the glass the Pinot enters with crushed raspberry, cherry and pain d´épice notes. The palate is nicely built, showing great flavour intensity and an invigorating freshness. It´s classically bone dry (4,5 grams of dosage) with a chalky presence , balanced by a mellow creaminess. Flavours of marzipan, confit de citron and peach with layers of mature nuttiness and fine pastry. Elegantly built with great persistency and precision. Drinks truly well today but should certainly improve from further cellaring.
The annual Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Moon Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. “May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart.” -Su Shi (Song Dynasty Poem)
The Goddess Chang’E sips her immortal tea elixir and floats up to the moon. We celebrate her beauty and vibrant health during the Moon Festival. However, beauty and health are long-lasting when we enjoy delicious Chinese teas.
