Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wine from the historic Chateau Miraval.
Despite separating in 2016, it’s business as usual for actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at their Provence estate Château Miraval and their 2018 vintage Rosé has just landed in New Zealand. Not only does this beautiful Rosé bask in the glory of celebrity it has been extremely well reviewed around the world, in fact the Los Angeles Times named it the "Best Rosé in the World" a few years back and the inaugural 2012 vintage of 6000 bottles sold out in just 5 hours.
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Pretty petal pink colour with shiny undertones. This 2018 vintage instantly reminds of Provence with its beautiful aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers. Airy and balanced, it delicately combines great freshness and complexity, and develops saline and mineral notes. Its long and intense finish is the signature of a rosé with incomparable elegance: Miraval.
Issued from the Château’s best parcels (Muriers, Longue, Romarin), and from selected parcels in the best terroirs of Provence. Clay & Limestone vineyard, partially in terraces located at an average of 1200 feet above sea level. Miraval's cold air pulling valley offers greater diurnal temperature variation."
90/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"Bottled just a few weeks before my visit, Miraval's 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose was in fine form. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Rolle, it boasts floral and melon aromas, while on the palate, it's medium-bodied, plump and fleshy, with a zesty, tangerine-tinged finish."
