The champagne is called Fleur De Miraval and is produced in the castle of Miraval, the estate in Provence purchased in 2011 by the couple who also married there
It might seem like non-news: yet another celebrity who puts his name on the label of a wine and that's it. Not for Brad Pitt, that he does things seriously. For this project (and not for a flashback) he met with the former Angelina Jolie and gave birth to Fleur De Miraval, the only champagne house dedicated exclusively to rosé champagnes. "This is not a celebrity wine," explains the actor. «I have personally supervised this adventure for the past five years and I am proud of the result. It is an authentic project of winemakers who combine skills, abilities and passion .
Brad and Angelina are not new to the passion for French wine: in 2011 they bought a chateau in the heart of Provence to produce – together with the Perrin family – the Miraval Côtes de Provence, a rosé wine that in a short time has achieved enormous success and great credibility in the sector. And now it Fleur De Miraval champagne.
For five years, the most beautiful ex-couple in Hollywood has been looking for the right formula and as always happens, sooner or later the magic happens: the grapes of a more mature Chardonnay, of different vintages, and those of a younger Pinot Noir, have given life to a harmonious, balanced and elegant champagne. The wine is aged in the cellars of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for three years and then bottled in bottles that are lacquered, to prevent the light from altering the wine. From October 15, fans of the couple will be able to taste this champagne, in a limited edition of 20 thousand bottles.
This new adventure, inspired by the legend of Countess Fleur de Miraval, a noblewoman who only sipped rosé champagne, saw together a historical family of French wine, i Perrin, is Rodolphe Péters, owner of the Pierre Péters fashion house in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. "It took five years of coordinated work between the Perrin and Péters families"Said Marc Perrin in an interview with" Wine Spectator ", «To develop what the final product is. A blend of 75% chardonnay and 25% pinot noir, aged three years in the cellar of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger . A wine therefore that has all the characteristics to seduce lovers of rosé and beyond. And maybe Brad and Angelina too.
