Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's first 6,000 bottles of wine from their vineyard in France may have sold out in hours—but is it any good?!

Despite wondering why the 2012 Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé comes in what looks like a champagne bottle, restaurateur and Master Chef judge Joe Bastianich admits in a review for Vanity Fair that Brangelina have produced "a very serious wine."

But how do you feel about Hello Kitty and PEZ?

"The wine itself is very, very, very pretty," Bastianich, who also owns several wineries, told the mag. "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.

And it was still darn tasty even though, according to Bastianich, he and VF writer Sarah Ball were quaffing the varietal at a warmer temperature "than it should be."

"We're sitting here thinking it tastes great here at Eataly [in NYC], but if it were sitting [on the French Riviera] on the beach, having it ice cold, it would be really great."

Funny, that's probably exactly how Brad and Angie prefer to drink it themselves.
