Clos Mireille is an ancient terrain distinguished for its combination of schists and clays, and by an absence of limestone. The vineyard's proximity to the sea explains the inimitable character of the wines produced at Clos Mireille. The microclimate and sea spray create the ideal conditions for the production of extremely rare wines. Clos Mireille has 124 acres of planted vineyards.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Pale orange-pink. Highly expressive strawberry, nectarine, honeydew and lavender scents, along with building floral, orange zest and salty mineral qualities. Silky and focused on the palate, offering densely packed citrus and pit fruit and red berry flavors that unfurl on the back half. Finishes dry and minerally, displaying superb persistence and resonating floral and mineral notes." Aug 2019

Wine & Spirits: Designated Top 100 Winery in the World 2018. "Clos Mireille sits close to the sea, a patch of schist and clay in La Londe Les Maures. Planted to grenache, with some cinsault, rolle and syrah, and farmed organically, it produced a tight rosé in 2018, succulent and strong. It tastes vividly of sea spray, powered by Meyer lemon-like acidity, while herbal notes play at the edges, like an echo of the scrub that grows between the vines. For all its power, this is a quiet wine, a rosé that demands close attention over a leisurely fish dinner." Aug 2019

Winery: "Bright and elegant salmon pink hue with a dusty pink core. The nose reveals a rich and intense bouquet of mandarin, dried apricots, mimosa and cardamom. Fresh and lively on the onset, this is an invigorating wine, with lovely, zesty fruit and long-lingering aromas of citrus peel and soft white peach."
