Côtes de Provence Rosé Azure Mirabeau, France, Provence
Grenache, Syrah / Shiraz
Located 5km from the historic La Garde-Freinet and in the commune du Golfe de Saint-Tropez, the domaine is a little over an hour from Nice airport and an hour-and-a-quarter from Marseille and therefore ideally situated for international travel and exploring the glamourous French Riviera. Yet its location means it is surrounded by Provence’s stunning villages and idyllic countryside.
Tucked away in the heart of the Var department in Provence, Domaine Mirabeau falls within the newly created subregion within the Côtes de Provence AOC, Notre Dame des Anges. The terroir covers 3,900 hectares of grapevines interwoven within the landscape of umbrella pines, cork oak trees and chestnut groves forming the Plaine des Maures National Nature Reserve, an ecosystem rich in fauna and flora.
The 20-hectare estate includes 14 hectares of vines (principally grenache, cinsault and rolle) and enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot summers, bright sunlight and a prevailing easterly wind. Unlike the rest of the region, which is dominated by low, soft-leaved ‘garrigue’ scrubland, this part of Provence is noticeably different with evergreen ‘maquis’ scrubland and stony terrain formed from pink sandstone and sandy soils.
