    New Pitt-Jolie Provence rosé creates stir

    Wine Spectator announces the first release of “Miraval,” produced at an estate owned by Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

    The 1,000-acre estate in the village of Corens, Wine Spectator writes, has about 150 acres of vineyards. The AOC Côtes de Provence rosé is “a blend of red grapes Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah and the white grape Rolle” and is being retailed at U.S. $23 to $28. 

    The Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel looks after production and distribution, although “Pitt and Jolie participated in the blending sessions.” The bottle of Miraval features a “distinctive Champagne punt design.” Perrin & Fils general manager Marc Perrin maintains that “it is not a celebrity wine – it is a great terroir, and we produce a family wine, so that’s why we are there.” According to the magazine, the initial lot of 6,000 bottles offered in France “sold out within five hours.”
