Brad Pitt's New Chardonnay-Focused Rosé Champagne, Miraval Petite Fleur, Launches in Singapore

 

You may remember Fleur de Miraval as the Champagne brand jointly owned by Brad Pitt and the Perrin family of Champagne makers. Their Miraval wines, born in the heart of Provence, practically epitomise that laid-back, luxurious French Riviera vibe we all secretly covet. The Champagne house is also the only one to exclusively produce rosé Champagne.

 

 

Their new cuvée, Petite Fleur, will soon be launched in Singapore under its appointed distributor, Wine Portal. The Petite Fleur is billed as a more classic take on rosé Champagne and also shines a spotlight on the Côte des Blancs region, known for its chalky soil that imparts a minerality.

The new cuvée is a bit of a departure from their usual style, using more Chardonnay from the Grand Crus Mesnil sur Oger and Pinot Noir from the 1st Cru Vertus. But here's the breakdown we're all curious about: 5% Pinot Noir, a whopping 65% Chardonnay, and a generous 30% of Fleur de Miraval's special Perpetual Reserve.

 

 

The brand describes this new release as a “contemporary cuvée” that is full of liveliness.

Official Tasting Notes

It opens with a lovely spring floral bouquet of peony and hawthorn, before blooming with notes of tangy, crisp red fruit, making it perfect for aperitif.

On the palate, is bright, juicy and fleshy, chiselled with fresh lemony citrus recalling ruby grapefruit and tangerine, finishing off with a subtle and airy tail.

If you're keen to give the Petite Fleur a try, the new cuvée is available for preorder at Grand Cru Wines Singapore from 27 June onwards!

 

Kanpai!
