Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt partnered with Perrin winemakers to produce Miraval Provence, and the first batch, an organic rosé, will make its first appearance this spring. Before its worldwide distribution began, a lucky one thousand got to purchase a six-bottle case. Those 6,000 bottles were sold in France only, within a mere couple of hours.
Pale pink in colour, the Miraval Provence will certainly rule the terrace, with its floral notes and aromas of pomegranate, apricot and raspberry. You’ll find its freshness and smoothness very delightful. The two Hollywood stars’ vineyard is located on a hilltop. Unlike more acid rosés made in coastal vineyards, the Miraval Provence has a touch of lightness courtesy of the area’s sharp temperature changes between day and night.
The Miraval Provence sells on the web for about US$25.
