Looks like everyone wants a piece of the Jolie-Pitts. Organic rosé wine produced at the couple’s French vineyard went up for sale online on Thursday and sold out within five hours, according to the Daily Mail.
The first 6,000 bottles of “Miraval Rosé 2012” were sold for $139 (€105) per 6-bottle case, which included shipping to addresses in France.
The wine, named after the A-list couple’s Château Miraval and produced at their 1,000-acre estate in Southern France, was previously released by the property’s original owners under the name “Pink Floyd,” after the iconic band that recorded The Wall in Miraval’s recording studio, according to Vanity Fair.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie teamed up with the Perrin family, who, according to Vanity Fair, owns Château Beaucastel, a winery famous for its Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and actively participated in the wine-making process by attending rosé-blending sessions and helping to create a new shape and label for the bottle. The partners have created 100,000 bottles of the rosé wine, which will be sold to independent wine stores and restaurants, Reuters reported.
Since Brad and Angelina’s wines are already sold out, we’ll have to take the word of the select few who have already sampled the new-old rosé. Thierry Desseauve, the first wine critic in the world to taste Miraval, praised the wine for its “dynamism” and “expressive fruit.”
The Jolie-Pitts and Perrins are expected to follow up on their Miraval rosé debut with red and white wines.
