Brad Pitt is set to release his very own rosé Champagne, Fleur du Miraval.
The movie star will sell the new wine under his Miraval label, a very popular rosé made on the Miravel estate, which Pitt and his then partner Angelina Jolie bought a 50 per cent stake in back in 2011. The former couple own the company alongside the Perrins family, who together have helped to make Miravel one of the most popular rosé wines in the world.
For the new project, the Miravel team is working with the Péters clan, a famed family of sixth-generation Champagne makers, who have together produced the wine using the saignée method of Champagne production, according to Forbes.
"For me, Champagne conjures up feelings of celebration, quality, prestige, and luxury," Pitt told People. "But rosé Champagne is still relatively unknown. Backed by our success with Miraval in Provence, I wanted us to try to create the defining brand of rosé Champagne, focusing all our efforts on just this one colour."
The first run of the Champagne will have just 20,000 bottles, each selling for $390 (about £290).
"Above all, it's a wonderful, exceptional estate that I fell in love with, and that I continue to invest in to make it one of the finest estates in Provence," Pitt added. "For the wine, I partnered with the Perrin family. They have been winemakers for five generations. Together, we're in it for the long term. It’s not just a passing trend."
Fleur du Miraval will hit shelves in the US in October.
