The Hollywood couple have got another prize-winning asset up their celebrity sleeve
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have yet another reason to celebrate.
Not content with their gongs for acting and humanitarian efforts – if you haven’t seen Angelina accepting her Humanitarian Award, you really need to – the couple are taking the wine world by storm, too.
If the Jolie-Pitt & Perrin wine label has slipped under your radar, (it’s probably not one you’ll find in your local off licence quite yet) then we won’t blame you.
The couple started producing wine last year in Provence, in the vineyard attached to their 35-room estate, and the result – the Chateau Miraval Rosé 2012 – has now been named as the best rose in the world by Wine Spectator.
Described as ‘Refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon. The focused finish features flint and spice notes, with a hint of cream.’ by Wine Spectator‘s Kim Marcus, the rose sold out within five hours when it was first released back in March.
Winemaker Marc Perrin, with whom the Hollywood couple make the tipple, said: ‘It is not a celebrity wine — it is a great terroir and we produce a family wine, so that’s why we are there.’ He also said that the pair were closely involved with the blending sessions, and with the design of the label and bottle for the wine.
With their large brood of children, and high-profile careers, we don’t know where they find the time. Now, where can we get a bottle?
