History of Chateau La Rose Cotes Rol
Born on Saint-Émilion land in Bordeaux, the Mirande family have been making wine for 6 generations. Keeping their legacy alive by passing down viticultural know-how and love of the vine, Pierre Mirande now runs the estate created by his grandfather in 1952.
With his first vintage in 1993, Pierre’s cuvées offer the most beautiful bunches from the most beautiful plots.
Grand Cru Château La Rose Côtes Rol gives aromas of mature red fruits, both tannic and silky, with a beautiful length. With a cellar dug in the heart of the village of Saint-Émilion, Pierre’s wines age in the perfect conditions and can be enjoyed young or kept for years to come. Selling only to private consumers at the estate since his grandfather’s days, we offer Pierre’s charming Grand Cru to be shared with you.
