Yes, yes we know we have been here before talking about celebrity branded wine and the growing trend and whether it’s a fad or not. But let’s be fair to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as they have just released their second wine and it’s not the celebrity/ female magazines raving about it but some of the industry’s harshest critics.
A botte of Miramar 2013 is pictured in Paris, Friday, Jan.31, 2014. The latest Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie sequel is being described as powerful and elegant with a “mouthwatering finish.” taken from Decanter magazine’s review of the celebrity couple’s second vintage of rose wine produced at their Provencal estate Chateau Miraval.
The 2013 Miraval goes on sale online Friday and will be in shops and restaurants around the world next month. Decanter describes the Cotes de Provence rose as "charmingly pretty in color" with "a delicate structure that deepens through the palate."
The 2012 vintage, Pitt's and Jolie's first since buying the 500-hectare (1,200 acre) estate, was the highest-ranked rose on Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 wines list.
Around 200,000 bottles of the '13 will be sold for around 15 euros each – so thoughts please should we try and bag some, who would be interested in trying this hyped up vintage?
