After having completely modernised the recording studios and revolutionary Provençal estate, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided to partner with the Perrin family once again in order to extend the brilliant Miraval philosophy and produce fine rosé champagnes. To ensure the success of this new challenge, Rodolphe Péters, one of the finest names among infamous champagne families, embarked on the Fleur de Miraval adventure.
In 1858, the winegrower Gaspar Péters married Miss Doué, owner of two hectares of vines. His grandson, Camille Péters, became an innovative winegrower who harvested and handled his own champagne from 1919. Since then, six generations have succeeded each other at Mesnil-sur-Oger and continue to perpetuate the ancestral passion and excellence.
Fleur de Miraval is poised on the Péters family's 20 hectares of land, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs. Located a few kilometres south of Epernay, a formidable terroir lies on chalky soil which holds plentiful amounts of water. The vines on the hillside are east-facing, protecting them from the western winds. Comprising 16 hectares of classified Grands Crus and with vintages marketed in 70 different countries, Rodolph Péters has all the necessary qualities to elevate the reputation of Fleur de Miraval to the level of Château Miraval.
Moreover, the Champagne owner shares a deep desire to create a new style of rosé champagne with the Miraval teams. With Fleur de Miraval, they all intend to create a rosé champagne where harmony and nobility provide the ensemble with a new structure and balance. To achieve this, a blend of Chardonnays of different ages makes up 75% of Fleur de Miraval rosé champagne, completed by 25% of young Pinot Noirs which give the mineral expression of the Chardonnay a fruity and acidic edge. And if indeed "the art of rosé is now available in Champagne", it stems from the very heart of the Fleur de Miraval House.
