Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wine has received quite the prestigious honor!
Wine Spectator has named the star couple's bottle of Jolie-Pitt & Perrin Côtes de Provence Rosé Miraval wine the best rosé wine in the world!
The Miraval rosé, which retails for $28, came in at 84 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines list of 2013, making it the top rosé on the globe. "Refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon," managing editor Kim Marcus writes in a review of the wine. "The focused finish features flint and spice notes, with a hint of cream. Drink now. 15,000 cases imported."
When Jolie and Pitt's wine first went on sale back in March, 6,000 bottles of their Miraval Rose 2012 sold out in a only few hours! "The sale started at 9 a.m., and all the bottles were sold out by 2 p.m.," said a rep for Vitabella, the public relations firm representing Jolie-Pitt's vineyard, in a statement.
Earlier this year, Master Chef judge Joe Bastianich gave the A-list couple's rosé a rave review.
"The wine itself is very, very, very pretty," Bastianich, who also owns several wineries, told Vanity Fair. "The color is kind of like fluorescent, Hello Kitty pink—some rosés get more coppery, but this is a very beautiful aesthetic." Though the taste was "slightly acidic" on his palate, he sniffed out "macerated wild strawberries, confectionary sugars, and strawberry or raspberry PEZ, like the candy"—another "very pretty" combination.
Talk about having something to raise a glass with!
