Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s French wine, Miraval, has gone on sale in a UK supermarket after winning rave reviews from critics.
Marks and Spencer is stocking a limited supply of the 2014 rose and has urged those seeking a taste of Hollywood via a Provence vineyard to “get in quick”.
The STG18 ($A34.50) a bottle wine is produced at the couple’s Chateau Miraval estate, where they married in August last year, in conjunction with the Perrin family of Chateau de Beaucastel.
Wine Spectator ranked the first vintage at number 84 in its list of the top 100 wines of 2013, making it the only rose included, while Decanter magazine described it as having “a sense of power alongside the elegance … with a delicious mouth-watering finish”.
The wine has sold previously in the UK through specialist merchants but M&S is the first to offer it up on the high street, describing it as an “intriguing pale pink rose with strawberry, white pear and floral aromas” with summer berry, wild herb and tangy tangerine flavours balanced by a refreshing acidity.
