Fleur de Miraval rosé Champagne

Brad Pitt divorced – and releases champagne

25.10.2021, News

Recently, Brad Pitt, who owned the Château Miraval together with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, announced the second release of Fleur de Miraval rosé Champagne.

Recall: after the divorce procedure of the star couple, since 2016, there has been a lengthy lawsuit over the division of property and custody of children, which ended this year with a decision in favor of the father. He received the right to joint upbringing, while Brad Pitt, it seems, lost 50% of the Château Miraval vineyards to Angelina Jolie without a fight. Angelina’s stake recently passed into the hands of Tenute Del Mondo, a subsidiary of the Stoli Group (on this occasion Damian McKinney, CEO of Stoli Group issued a statement in which he expressed frank delight).

Fleur de Miraval rosé Champagne

The first release of Fleur de Miraval rosé champagne took place in 2020. At the same time, the chateau of Hollywood stars is located in Provence, due to which it is included in the piggy bank of the famous Provencal rosé, but the right to the name champagne Miraval rosé received thanks to a collaboration with champagne growers – Pierre Péters. The permanent winemaker working with Pitt at Château Miraval is the Perrin family, which runs their own Château de Beaucastel estate in the Rhone Valley.

The second edition of Fleur de Miraval rosé champagne is named ER2, where ‘E’ stands for ‘exclusively’ and ‘R’ stands for ‘rosé’. The base for the sparkling wine was the harvest of 2017 and 75% is Chardonnay of different years (including 2012, 2014), 25% is Pinot Noir of the latest vintages. The bottling took place in April 2021 (dosage 4 g per liter). And the other day the chateau released its pink champagne to the world with a recommended price of € 320 (13,500 UAH – in Kyiv Good Wine).

Brad Pitt said that this release is a demonstration of a new level of winemaking.
